Diane Bigham has been my urologist for 18 months. Prior to seeing her, I was treated by males. My experience with them is that they have colossal egos and zero listening skills. Diane is the complete opposite of them. She is kind, has outstanding bed side manor, is respectful and she listens and asks very good and very thorough questions. I first came to Diane with acute urological problems and chronic pain suffered in a fall that resulted in a full hyperextension of my pelvic floor. I had been seeing several male urologists one of whom took about five minutes to diagnose my problem as chronic post vasectomy testicular pain syndrome. His answer was to remove a testicle. After months of suffering with debilitating pain I finally relented and let this doctor take the testicle. Six weeks after the surgery the pain returned. I later read that removing a testicle does not result in the elimination of pain for what I have been suffering with.

I was referred to Doctor Bigham by my physical therapist who specializes in pelvic floor injuries. She recommended that Dr Bigham evaluate me and upon doing so found that my pelvic floor injury was contributing to my testicular pain. Dr Bigham performed a series of pelvic floor trigger point injections. After the second round of injections I was pain free for 30 days. I have had several rounds of these injections which are done in the hospital under conscious sedation and I am experiencing less pain for longer periods with each treatment. Dr Bigham works in concert with my pain management physician Dr Sean Growney who is also the best in his field. Together they have given me months of reduced pain or pain free days, the first time in eight years I have experienced no pain. Dr Bigham also found during her treatment of me that my problems with urinary retention were as a result of my pelvic floor injury. She has begin to treat that problem and again we are seeing positive results.

I have heard some people say that some event in their lives changed their life. Dr Bigham's treatment of me did exactly that. My quality of life has improved significantly over the last year because of the outstanding treatment I have receive by Dr Diane Bigham.

If you are a male and are concerned about going to a female urologist I would encourage you to give her a try. She sees genitalia every day in her job as does her staff. Believe me seeing you is nothing new to them. The question is are you more concerned about your possible embarrassment at allowing a female physician treat your urological problem or do you want to get the problem resolved and go on to live a better life. The choice is up to you but I have found that female physicians tend to be much better listeners, they do more research and tend to be better physicians at the specialist level overall than their male counterparts. That as been my experience with Dr Bigham and several other female physicians that treat me. The question is do you want your problem solved by the best urologist in West Michigan or are you going to risk your manhood in the hands of some guy whose ego plays a significant role in his practice of medicine. The choice is up to you. I made the right choice the question is will you?
