  • Doctors in Minneapolis suburban area

    My daugther needs to find a new urologist, preferably in the Edina/Minneapolis suburb area. Has anyone have knowledge of Dr. Albert Enriquez uro/gyno in St. Louis Park, MN listed on ICN dr. list?

    She also needs to see a new gyno for pelvic pain.
    Does anyone have any experience with Dr. Presthus in Edina, MN?

    Are either one of them any good? It is so hard to find someone that will do no harm.

    Thank you for any replies.

    I know this is an old post....

    However, I saw Dr. Presthus for many years. I would say he's a great gyno - not as good with the IC side of things, although he stated he has lots of IC patients. He was open to any of my suggestions, and sent me to pelvic floor therapy, which was helpful. However I never had suggestions on new things to try for IC, and I didn't get regular urine tests, never an in-office ultrasound to follow up on my retention issues, etc.

    I now see a dr. in the St. Cloud area and that's working better for me.

    IBS 4/04; IC 8/05; Vitamin B-12 Deficiency 7/06; Asthma 9/06; Citrus, MSG, Sulfate/Sulfite, Nitrate/Nitrite, Sodium Benzoate Allergy diagnosed 9/06; Fibromyalgia 6/07; Pelvic Floor disfunction 2007; Hysterectomy 10/08; Fallopian Tube Cyst removed 5/10; Chronic Diarrhea since 12/10 ; Ulcerative Colitis 4/12

      Dr.'s in Coon Rapids, MN

      Hi Kita,

      This is coming a couple years later, but in case you are still looking for a good Urologist, I found Gabriel Khomjathy and Jill Freeman through Allina Medical Clinic in Coon Rapids to be very helpful. Jill's specialty is IC, so that was really nice to be talking with a dr. who knew a lot about this. I hope you found someone that is working well for you.
      Diagnosed with IC Oct. 2007
      Symptoms: Frequency, Urgency

      Current Meds:
      Atarax 10mg
      Amitriptyline (Elavil) 25mg
      Celexa 30mg
