    I know right. Am worried if I go somewhere else there is a chance that that specialist might have a worse story. So I might be better of staying with Doc Stalewski. Arrrrhh feel so confused. Am thinking if he did have a bad track record he probably would have lost his licence or would not be recommended by so many paediatricians.

    I am pretty sure you have to go to Brisbane to find someone else.

    Have you met with him?

    Yes he is really abrupt. Really need to find the lady at the shop and ask her what her experience was. Hopefully it was a really complicated op and that's why it went bad. If not then guess we are off to Brisbane.

    Just wanted to update. Went and saw the paediatrician who is aware of Stalewski bad bedside manner but knows of the case and said it was very complicated and doesn't believe it was Stalewski's fault thing went wrong. I trust the paediatrician ( who was also happy to refer me to Brisbane if I still wasn't comfortable) so we are going ahead in April. I will update after the op just for reference if others are going through the same dilemma. Thanks for all your advice and support .

    He operated on my DS for a kidney issue several years ago and was very professional - yes, his bedside manner is somewhat lacking but his professionalism and expertise is not. Know several others who've seen him for various reasons with no issues complaints. Was referred to him by a Sydney paed when we were moving to Townsville who said he was one of the best and he seems highly regarded also by the surgeon DS now sees for follow ups in Melbourne.

    Just wondering if you ended up using Dr Stalewski, Dragonfly and how it all went? My boy has hyperspadia and needs an operation and the Dr referred to it as a "major" reconstruction of his penis. I'm freaking out a bit and don't know whether I should look in Brisbane for someone else? I only want the best for my son. I'm probably being silly. He could be a very good surgeon but I just didn't like him when I met him. Kind of puts me off but if he is the best all of that doesn't really matter. tia

    Sorry for the late reply. Yes we did use him and he did an amazing job. Has the worst bedside manner I have ever seen but was great when it counted.
