Pennsylvania Men's Midical Clinic? Their ad showed up in my local newspaper (Delaware) and I was just wondering what's up with them and whether they are legit.
Thanks.

Hi Tanda..........saw that one myself in the News Journal, and have been trying to determine just how legit they are. I see you had your surgery in 4/09. You're the only other DE person to show up on this forum (to my knowledge, anyway)...who did your surgery and where? My local uro is Desperito; I had my surgery done by Lee at HUP.

Arnie, my uro is Terranova and had DaVinci @ Christiana. Do you have a local email I can email you?

Tanda......it's not advisable to post one's email address in the forum............we can do that where we register our profile, and can change at any time. If you click on my name or yours, it'll take you to this page. Both of us are unlisted email addresses at this point. Terranova is good. He operated on a good friend of mine 5 years ago before he started doing Davinci, and that guy has been undetectable since. Also performed a kidney transplant operation on another friend of mine and his son. Terrific results............let me go post my email address (i.e., edit my profile)

Guys,
This clinic is just another one in a long line of dubious practices. Boston Medical Group, New York something or other.

They do NOT offer anything any other doctor can...except a great show and a huge bill.

They make a big deal of doppler tests, blood flow, etc. Then inject you with a quad mix...of a proprietary blend...it is a big secret. Then, charge you hundreds of dollars for the appt...plus injections.

Guys are desperate...they'll pay. these guys are there ready for their prey. This poem says it all...

Thanks, Paul.....the ad had that air about it for sure, and I suspected as much from the come-on nature of the ad.............I had no intentions of pursuing, but I, like Tanda I'm sure, was curious.

We had one of these open in Baton Rouge also. I asked my GP and Uro about them. Neither had good things to say about them. Insurance does not cover and they do lots of test that you pay out of pocket. 
 
With that being said.  Desperate men take desperate measures. shocked
