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.
    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.
