The negative reviewers are wrong. Dr. Cornell is incredibly knowledgeable, listens to his patients, and gets results! I had been to two other Urologists (at a big practice). Compared to Dr. Cornell, they were in the stone age. I can't say Dr. Cornell saved my life, but he saved my quality of life by properly diagnosing and treating chronic prostatitis which had been completely missed by many other doctors. If you even think prostatitis is a possibile diagnosis, don't take chances with any other urologist.

Dr. Cornell is a highly competent urologist who gets results. I had been incorrectly diagnosed with interstitial cystitis by my OBGYN. This disease does not have many treatment options and I was told to "just deal with it". My father told Dr. Cornell of my interstitial cystitis, which Dr. Cornell said was often misdiagnosed. I went to see him and he has me on a medication that has completely alleviated all of my symptoms and should eventually cure my condition. I would highly recommend him to anyone, including female patients.

I came to see Dr. Cornell after seeing about 5-6 other urologists regarding my prostate issues (prostatitis). I'd heard from a friend of mine who'd seen him before that he was an excellent physician and that I should give him a try. I'm so thankful I did because my prostate gland feels so much better and so do I. He reviewed my history, reviewed what these other physicians tried (which most were WAY off base and not even close to doing anything to resolve my problems) and gave me a few options of treatment. He is very involved in his patients' treatment and progress. I chose an option he presented because it would have been his first choice if he were the patient. After a few days of taking the medication and trying some of the other suggestions he made I was feeling almost brand new. I had been suffering with these symptoms for what seems like an eternity and after each prior physician visit I became less and less hopeful that I could ever have it resolved. Dr. Cornell has taken care of me and I'm so thankful. He's taken my calls after hours, answered emails on the weekends and is never in a rush when I'm visiting him. He always makes certain I'm taken care of in every way possible. His staff is wonderful. I just wish I had found him sooner! If you need a doctor that truly cares, Dr. Cornell is for you!

He is the worst doctor I've ever seen. He knows nothing. Whatever i ask, he says "I don't know I'm sorry. I don't know the answer", "I don't know anyone who you should see", "did you see a primary care physician?". He is a total rubbish!! I really wanted to says that if you don't know anything then why are you charging me?

Dr. Cornell has helped me, over the course of about 7 years or so, go from a prostate and bladder in major distress to basically normal function with a few hiccups here and there. One of the reviewers said he doesn't treat prostate issues; actually, the exact OPPOSITE is true. that's his specialty, and he's damn good at it. Another of the trolls wrote a pulitzer-worthy thought about the loudly spoken "obese nurse." I happen to know and care about that person, and saying such ugly things behind keyboard makes you both a coward AND an idiot. He's actually a kind, congenial person who cares about Dr. C's patients. all of them. In sum, Dr. Cornell is absolutely the man to see if you're having prostate issues of any kind. He understands the shame that can sometimes come with a diagnosis like this. so, don't delay. go and see him.

Dr. Cornell is easily the best urologist in Atlanta - and I have seen quite a few! He takes the time to get to know you as a person and as a patient. While other urologists had basically given up on treating me for recurring kidney stones and cystitis, Dr. Cornell has gone above and beyond to help me over the years (over a decade) - never giving up! He is knowledgeable, professional, caring and willing to continue to try new ideas to help chronic conditions. His calm demeanor has kept me calm in the midst many painful and scary times. I cannot thank him enough for the outstanding medical care he has given me! Unlike most physicians, Dr. Cornell is always accessible- either in the office, on the phone or through email. That is almost unheard of in this day and time! His staff can only be described as top notch! They are always friendly, caring and professional. Time after time Dr. Cornell and his staff have come through for me!

I just left my appointment and was very unimpressed and left in more pain then coming in. The super obese medical assistant was on the phone talking about all these pain meds he is taking and talking about rubbing something on his butt. NO PROFESSIONALISM AT ALL. I was very uncomfortable throughout my whole appointment and couldn't wait to get out of there.

Dr. Cornell's urology practice is by far the best I have ever been to. The staff is first rate and Dr Cornell takes all the time needed to explain your diagnosis and answer all of your questions. Visits to his practice are not stressful because he is the only doctor and the waiting room is not filled with dozens of patients. I have never waited longer than 10 minutes to see him.

My overall visits with Dr. Cornell are great. He is extremely caring physician. His office is very clean and his office has been very accommodating for me when needed. My only complaint is the office manager Brenda. I mostly just try to avoid this lady on my visits. She has a stuck up attitude and have witnessed her rude behavior towards some patients on several of my office visits. But other than my experience with her I would recommend this office for the excellent physician Dr. Cornell is.

Stay away from this doctor. He is rude, unkind, his office staff were cold, the surroundings are bland, but most importantly, this was the worst experience I have ever had at ANY doctor's office. He essentially kicked me out and said that he could not help me, because he did not know my medical history and HE DOESN'T WORK ON PROSTATE ISSUES. He was extremely cold, arrogant and highly unprofessional. I will tell my own primary care internist and everyone that I meet about this encounter with this supposedly "wonderful" urologist.

My assessment of David Cornell, M.D. is one of a competent,thorough and caring urologist who has a compassionate bedside manner. He truly listens to what the patient says. I am profoundly grateful for the relief Dr. Cornell has given me. My confidence in his medical skills is demonstrated by recommending him to my friends. Importantly, his office staff is friendly and very sincere in helping you feel at ease. Bailey 11/2012

I am a patient of Dr. Cornell's and I agree with all of the positive feedback he, and his staff, receive. He is extremely professional and caring. His office is very clean and he has been very accomodating on a moments notice. He has even taken time to email me late at night on a weekend when I was experiencing difficulties. Doctors don't come any better than this. I would reccomend him to anyone in need of a top notch urologist. Kevin E.

I needed to consult with a Urologist and looked at reviews from this site as well as others. After reading the reviews, looking at the backgrounds and experience of the various doctors, I decided to visit Dr David Cornell. He had great reviews, an excellent education and significant experience. After my first consultation, it was obvious that he is extremely bright and knowledgeable. He is excellent at diagnosing and discussing all the possibilities and solutions. Also, his way of dealing with patients is great. He listens well, answers any questions, and communicates the complexities of medicine in a way that you can understand. If you need to consult with a Urologist, Dr David Cornell is one of the best.

After learning of Dr. Cornell's reputation, I traveled from Michigan to meet with him. He addressed my issue, and the results have been outstanding. I feel compelled to say Dr. Cornell maintains and respects the human element of medicine: his patients are not simply cases on a chart, they matter. It is difficult to express adequately the gratitude I have for Dr. Cornell and his staff. If any hesitation exists, I urge you wholeheartedly to put your trust in Dr. Cornell.

Dr. Cornell was a miracle worker for me. Initially he succesfully (!) address an infertility issue for me - so successful that I ultimately had him perform a vasectomy as well. He is knowledgable, experienced, thoughtful, caring, and spends a lot of time with you. His staff has the same attitude and is also first rate (also unusual!). No other Dr. helped me to enhance so much of my life - than he has. I will always have a debt of gratitude for Dr. Cornell. I only wish I could find a general practioner and other specialists who are half as good. I don't usually write glowing reviews for anyone/thing - but it is absolutely called for here.
