    Once I was able to talk to dr Stoller things happened in a timely fashion. But no one was answering the phone at the urology clinic.

    Dr. Stoller is a dynamic surgeon that cares for his patients and is exceptional in his profession. He will always be highly recommended by me. I'm so fortunate to have had the opportunity to have Dr. Stoller become my surgeon to perform my kidney stone removal. Huge Thanks!

    Excellent phone meeting with Dr. Stoller. He listened to my concerns addressed them and reassured me. Very good!!
    Mar 14, 2023
    I left this appointment more worried about my condition than when I went in. The only glimmer of hope is that I'm being referred to another specialist that may address my concerns.

    Marshall is the best!
    Jan 14, 2023
    Discussion of my recent CT results ( which was the whole point of the appointment) were not reviewed or shared in any depth or meaningful way and no meaningful plan was discussed. I realize the conclusion was to do nothing nowbut I was hoping for more guidance and information. He's a wonderful caring person but too busy and ultimately I didn't feel like my needs were met with this phone call based appointment.

    Dr. Stoller is very nice and friendly. He didn't rush me and told me what he was going to do. I have total confidence in him.I felt good after our visit.
    Nov 20, 2022
    He felt slightly rushed (likely due to being 30 minutes behind schedule) but still gave good information about what to expect as next steps and answered my questions. The only things that could have been explained better were a clinical trial that he mentioned as a procedure option (it wasn't clearly described as a clinical trial procedure option until a research assistant called me the next day) and how to follow up to actually schedule the procedure.

    Dr. Stoller is awesome

    I was very disappointed with my interaction. I had waited months to finally get authorized to see a UCSF doctor and was excited to share my experiences and hopefully come up with a treatment plan. I felt totally rushed during the appointment anytime I tried to speak I was cut off. I never got to explain or ask about the new procedure I was looking Into the Thulium fiber laser. The doctor mentioned I would be a good candidate for a trial procedure but did not explain what it entailed or how it was different from conventional lithotripsy. Overall I was very frustrated and disappointed I wish I could have had a conversation about my history and concerns.
    Nov 12, 2022
    I enjoyed meeting Dr. Stoller. He was very easy to talk to friendly and seemed very concerned and focused on me.

    I'm a fan of Dr. Stoller. ( He has saved my life on multiple occasions). He proceeds in a very humble straight forward approach. This bedside manner works for me as I aim to provide the same care/approach to my patients as a practicing pharmacist at SFGH.

    Dr. Stoller and his team were just great.
    Oct 03, 2022

    Dr. Stoller is a great surgeon. I had 2 UCSF surgeries in 2021 (last summer); he is a great surgeon but some in his support staff are not helpful.

    Not needed. All fives to well written questions.

    This is a teaching situation. Providers are learning or teaching a procedure in my case a Stent exchange. We all work together for the best outcome.

    Dec 05, 2021
    Didnt see my doctor in personNeed to be seen in the near future
    Dec 03, 2021
    I wish I had been referred to this provider many years ago. He is not close (2 hrs. From Sacramento to San Francisco) but I am a 35+ year chronic kidney stone producer and he has provided me with world class information and hands on expertise including salvaging a very badly damaged right kidney/ureter in 2019.
    Nov 04, 2021
    I want the results of the 24 hour urine catch please. I still want to know why my PH is high. I was told this last time and then again this time with NO explanation!
    Oct 28, 2021
    Never saw him
    Sep 18, 2021
    Actually saw doctor in person. Discussion good.
    Sep 16, 2021
    Should I recommend this excellent care provider to others when the clinic is so poorly run and the patient experience is terrible? I would explain the tradeoffs.
