During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Dean Tortorelis at Minnesota Urology/Urology Associates?
Every time we went to see DR. Tortorelis, he would always say "Dont worry guys. We will help you have your family" And honestly, No one has ever been as hopeful as he has been with us after finding out about my husbands azoospermia. Also, on our first time seeing him, he was telling us that my husbands diagnosis shouldn't have been based off of one test so he scheduled a 2nd one. Lastly, for my Husbands Testicular Biopsy, he referred us to his colleague which that doctor didnt have a available appointment until 4 months after and we were highly upset. So Dr. Tortorelis told us not to worry and he would speak to him to squeeze us in and we got scheduled to see the referred doctor the next week!

What specific things went wrong at Minnesota Urology/Urology Associates?
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Minnesota Urology/Urology Associates.
One time there was a confusion about an appointment we had. One nurse, who was not our nurse, said it was going to be at another location which was closer to our home but I could've sworn the location was still at the regular one. I finally was able to speak to our nurse the day before the appointment and she did clear it up that it was our regular location. We needed to know that because the drive there is 45 minutes and that was a big deal
