8/8/2017

I had prostate cancer and Dr. Hemal operated on me, my brother brings me to my appointments and my brother said if he ever had prostate problems, Dr. Hemal would be his doctor

7/29/2017

The sum total of face time with Dr Hemal prior to surgery was less than 3 minutes. I never saw him the day of surgery nor did my family. I learned much more about my surgery from my own research than from any conversation with Dr H or his office. He also insisted that he provided information to me that he never did.

7/27/2017

this practice was recommended to me and I have confidence.

7/25/2017

Dr. Hemal is terrific. The two tests were a little uncomfortable and slightly painful. He was excellent at checking with me to make sure I was able to tolerate the procedure, keep me apprised of the time remaining, and talking with me about what he was seeing and its importance.

7/16/2017

good experience

7/6/2017

He is one of the best doctors anywhere and I would recommend him to anyone.

6/27/2017

Still have not received toxicology report or follow up from prostate biopsy

6/17/2017

good experience

6/17/2017

Dr. Hemal stayed past office closing hour to attend to me.

5/27/2017

Excellent experience!

5/17/2017

Dr Christopher, Dr Hemal Fellow, and Dr Hemal were very open and forthright with the information concerning my condition and healing. IN fact since the visit, I slept 6 hours without going to the bathroom last night - a real win. They answered all of my 20 questions plus more.

5/11/2017

i live in southwest va and when i see or hear of someone in need i tell them about wake and how they saved my life

5/2/2017

Excellent. *Dr. Hemal and my Wake Forest care givers have gone over board, for me & my family to go "the extra mile" to make our experience great. #9. Excellent, I lean on *Dr. Hemal for care - #10. I always praise them to everyone I talk to or meet.

5/1/2017

*Dr. Hemal is the best.

2/27/2017

I am very happy to have this provider

1/31/2017

have the upmost respect and confidence in my excellent doctor and feel blessed to have him as my physician

1/11/2017

Drs. Hemel and Reynolds are excellent, and I appreciate their care and compassion.

1/5/2017

The provider was very nice. He seemed concerned about my problem. I put my trust in him.

12/26/2016

Dr. Hemal has been good to me. He did robotic surgery on my kidney last year. This year he found a cancer in my bladder. He is a doctor who will listen to you. He tries to do the best he can for you.

12/19/2016

Dr. Hemal is excellent.

12/17/2016

Doctor was very much on the defensive about my concerns, did not seem to be paying attention to what I wanted to discuss-- wanted instead to make HIS points. Seemed agitated about being questioned at all-- maybe he's not used to having anyone complain about his communication skills. He was, in his way, trying to explain things to me, but is not a good listener.

10/25/2016

Very positive experience.

10/18/2016

I received excellent medical care from Dr. Hamal.

10/18/2016

DR. HEMAL WAS SUPBERB!! GREAT EXPLAINATIONS AND CONCERNS ABOUT MY PROBLEM. I WENT AHEAD AND SET UP AN APPOINTMENT IN ONE YEAR TO EVALUATE MY PROBLEM AT THAT TIME. HE WAS SO UPDATED ON MY HEALTH RECORDS AND EXPLAINED THEM TO ME VERY WELL.
