Has anyone had experience with any of the surgeons who perform DaVinci in the Austin, Texas area? If so, I would appreciate any feedback.

I used Randy Fagin off 183. One of the early ones and highly recommended to me by Dr. Tewari. I went to the hospital at 6am was out the next day. Good personable and competent guy. Google him.

Did you end up using Dr. Fagin? I am trying to decide who to use. I went to Dr Cueller but have heard Dr. Fagin has done more. I was diagnosed as having PC May 13th and trying to decide what to do. 5 of the 12 biopsy's were cancer 3 were 6 and 2 were 7. Also had 3 undetermined. Would like to know experiences someone has had with both Drs.
