I can hardly express the devotion and professional care I received by Dr. Michel and his staff.

-Stuart K.

A member of my family was treated at Comprehensive Urology for prostate cancer. Cancer is the last thing anyone wants to deal with in their family. Luckily, the staff at Comprehensive Urology is extremely smart and treated us all very well and now my family member is cancer free! I can’t recommend them enough!

-Kevin O.

I found everyone at Dr. Michel’s busy office extremely cordial, friendly and helpful. I have early prostate cancer and contrary to another Yelper; I too had insurance problems (unknown at the time) and their billing office helped with my biopsy costs. Dr. Michel were particularly nice. My wife and I found the Dr Michael engaging and informative with a great helpful manner. The nurses were competent and skilled and made me feel like they cared about my well-being also the office staff are extremely congenial and sweet.

-Graham E.

I feel very fortunate that Dr. Michel and the Comprehensive Urology Medical Group were recommended to me by my doctor in 2007 when my PSA started to spike. He and his staff have taken such good care of me that I am healthy and happy in 2013 and very appreciative of their professionalism and skill in getting me from there to here in one piece.

Urological problems are neither easy nor fun and I have been through prostate and bladder issues including elevated PSA, erectile dysfunction, frequent urination, and malignant bladder cancer which was caught just in time and removed by Dr. Michel’s skill and with the assistance of his excellent staff. Through many diagnostic and therapeutic procedures such as biopsies, cystoscopies, kidney scans, bladder scans, prostate examinations, MRI’s, sonograms, Uro-dynamics studies, BCG series, catheters, and many others, I have always felt comfortable and safe with Dr. Michel and his staff, and I have always felt that my health was extremely important to them. They recently shared my joy and relief at a prostate biopsy that proved negative after a series of scary PSA readings.

I do not make it a habit of singing the praises of professionals, but the older I get the more I depend on my internist, urologist, dermatologist, allergist, dentist, and other professionals to work with me to manage the medical problems that naturally come along. Good genes and being from hardy Irish/Italian peasant stock are a big help in good health but there is no substitute for medical professionals who are considerate, attentive, professional, knowledgeable, thoughtful, and insightful.

I am indebted to Dr. Michel and his staff that I approach my 70th birthday in three weeks feeling rather good and without any complaints worth mentioning.

I cannot recommend Dr. Michel and the Comprehensive Urology Medical Group more highly. Thank you for your consideration and good luck to any readers who are confronting medical issues and wondering whom they can trust. I hope that my experience will be helpful to you

-George M.


A warm, straight-forward, no-nonsense doctor. Fully committed and thorough as can be. This is a fine doctor!

-Barry M.

I have been seeing Dr. Sanford for a few years. I had seen many urologists prior to seeing Dr. Sanford, and none of them could give me a definitive answer of what was causing my urologic issues.

A friend recommended Dr. Sanford and I am very glad she did! Dr. Sanford was nice and easy to talk to. He took the time to try to understand what was going on. One of my biggest complaints with other doctors is I felt like they were brushing me off and not listening to me when I told them how much pain I was in. I did not feel that way with Dr. Sanford at all. Dr. Sanford ran some tests and finally figured out what was going on. I am very glad to have found him and recommend him highly

-Jessica L.

My husband was referred to Dr. Michel by his internist. Dr. Michel is one of the best doctors I have ever met. He not only dealt with my husband amazingly, he did all the appropriate tests, recommended a procedure, did the procedure and gave us the wonderful result in a very efficient, professional and pleasant. Way. Dr. Michel is the calmest, most professional, nicest, knowledgeable, and it doesn’t hurt that he is nice to look at, doctor I have ever been to. My husband had a second opinion but decided to go with Dr. Michel which was the best choice. I would highly recommend Dr. Michel to anyone needing an urologist.

I would like to add that his office staff was equally nice, professional, efficient, knowledgeable, pleasant and very accommodating as was his surgical staff. All around, a great experience for us and everyone in his office that we came in contact with last month. Thank you all again.

-Karen A.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Michel and the entire staff at Comprehensive Urology Group, who handled with skill, care, and compassion my case of prostate cancer. His care has been excellent from both before the surgery when he provided knowledgeable, clearly understandable and caring recommendations on the course to take to treat the prostate cancer — he allowed me plenty of time to consider the options — to after the surgery when he and his staff have continued to provide excellent and thorough follow-up to what was a successful surgery for the cancer. I would like to use this opportunity here to thank once again Dr. Michel and all those at Comprehensive Urology Group who I’ve been working with for their skill, dedication, and concern.

-Richard G.

Dr. Michel is the best!! He is kind, compassionate and walks you through all the details.

-Peter D.

Over the past several years, Dr. Michel and his staff have been extremely professional, caring and friendly. I’m always greeted with a smile, seen in a timely manner, easily tested and scanned and given complete and honest advice.

I would recommend Dr. Michel and the team at Comprehensive Urology for any consultation and/or treatment.

-Michael K.

Dr. Michel is a consummate professional who also happens to be one of the nicest doctors I have ever encountered. His knowledge of his field of medicine gives you great confidence as he actually takes time to explain the various options that are available to you. Then takes time to thoroughly discuss the procedure and to answer any questions that you may have about it. I’ve been extremely pleased with Dr. Michel and the results of the treatment he recommended.
