    For the first time since being diagnosed with prostate cancer I felt as if I had a doctor that was genuinely invested in determining the exact nature of the condition the risk assessment and coming to an Informed treatment plan. When we parted Dr. Crocitto looked at me and said " We will figure this out. I got you." I cannot express fully how meaningful that was to me.

    I came to UCSF a long ways based on the institution's reputation. The Dr was very patient and explained ALL my choices to treat my cancer. After dealing for months of what I would describe as a fairly horrible experience with a local urologist ( luckily I have a WONDERFUL primary care Dr!) she was such a relief! Finally I felt in good hands!

    Not satisfied with the Initial MRI scheduling where Ucsf has low priority in scheduling BPH patients.
    Nov 12, 2022
    Dr. Crocitto was considerate of my privacy letting me know about the wireless scribe device and also offered the presence of a 2nd observer before examination. She was objective and thorough in explaining the procedures and sequence of options for exploratory diagnosis. She answered all my questions during the appointment.
