"Dr. Paduch is a fantastic physician who has changed my life. I suffered for several years from Low Testosterone and ED. Unexplained by all other physicians. I decided it was time to try again and found Dr. Paduch. His office staff is extremely helpful, fast to respond, and above all courteous as well as understanding that for men some issues are just too painful to think about. Dr. Paduch diagnosed and fixed my issues. He continues to work with me for any question that I may have." - Matt
"Dr Paduch is more than a wonderful urologist, he is a kind caring and supportive physician. He has an outstanding bedside manner, and is incredibly knowledgeable, thorough, and works well with patients, and respects our input. He is overall an outstanding man---and working with him, with all of his patience and guidance, has resulted in significant quality of life improvements for our family!! The care he provides is second to none. Thank you Dr Paduch."
"I have a 14 year old son that is XXY. Some of the effects of his condition; he doesn't produce enough testosterone and he doesn't produce much sperm. Dr Paduch and his treatment has made a huge impact on our son's life. With the testosterone medication he is more confident, more calm, and more grown up. So many subtle differences you can't describe. Dr Paduch recently performed a testicular biopsy on him and was able to microscopically find some sperm that we are preserving for later! WOW!"
