I was told Dr Wagner was “the best.” After meeting with him discussing all options, thru surgery and post-op visits I can say he is the best. His honesty, experience and understanding thru the entire process was great. His staff was helpful and made everything happen with ease. It was a difficult time and they guided me thru it where I look back and say wow it’s done.

My wife and myself met Dr Wagner after finding out I had prostate cancer. Dr Wagner’s easy way of making me feel at ease was what I needed at that time. After my surgery I had many questions and he was easily accessible and always answered me in a way that was easy to understand. I just completed my 5yr follow up appointment and everything looks good. I would recommend Dr Wagner to anyone that needed a great surgeon and good friend during the 5 yrs I was under his care. Mike

Straight forward approach. Wasn't concerned about telling me what I wanted to hear, but rather what I should hear. Left visit with a strong understanding of my condition, different options of treatment, and recovery information.
