David B. Bayne


Eagle Scout and Bay Area native

Dr. David Bayne is a urologist who specializes in caring for patients with kidney stones and bladder stones, often using minimally invasive surgical techniques – such as endoscopic, laparoscopic or robotic approaches – to treat these conditions. He also has expertise in caring for patients with ureteral strictures (obstructions caused by narrowing of the tube that carries urine from each kidney to the bladder).

Bayne studies health factors that determine the risk of kidney stone disease in different populations as well as surgical outcomes for these patients. His research is funded by the National Institutes of Health.

Bayne earned his medical degree from Harvard Medical School. At UCSF, he completed a residency in urology and a fellowship in endoscopic urology. He has a master of public health degree from the University of California, Berkeley.

During medical school, Bayne completed rotations in Mirebalais, Haiti, and Medellín, Colombia. He is fluent in Spanish.

    I felt as if my doctor was busy. They may have been and that's fine I know how hospitals can be but you never want to make your pt feel that you are busy and that you have a thousand other things to do outside their room even if that's the case. I felt as if the doctor was just trying to get through with me quickly to move on with their tasks. I was appreciative of the follow up apt I was given but I'm not totally sure the explanation/reasoning behind them. I just wish there was a little more explanation or at least more to refer back to in my AVS.

    I am a new patient and felt very comfortable telling him what's going on since I was treated elsewhere.

    The provider was very clear about issues and next steps - he also gave me options and explained clearly on what the next steps are and why we need to take them

    The procedure went unexpectedly bad. Even worse there was no way for them to take care of my issue in the building I was in. Then I was taken to the ER by wheelchair and put in queue for emergency services. I found this to be unconscionable and a violation of the trust that I put into the physician's hands. It was so bad that I decided to not give them the opportunity to kill me and went to a trusted facility. Again unconscionable behavior I would not have expected that in the Congo possibly at the vets office.

    Everything was explained to me in a manner that I can understand. I appreciate straightforward explanations. I'm confident as we move forward.

    My condition was due to poor eating habits. Dr. Bayne was very kind while explaining the procedure. This is the third time for my stones. The man is awesome.

    Dr Bayne was wonderful I cannot recommend UCSF kidney stone clinic because of how horrible it is to try and schedule and get in to see a doctor.

    Great bedside manner. Hope UCSF can keep him.
