Dr. Hodge performed surgery to remove a kidney that had a huge cancerous tumor. That cancer was encapsulated in the kidney with no cancer cells outside. I did not even need chemo after the surgery. Dr. Hodge was my angel, sent by God, and he saved my life. I know he is a very religious man but he does not try to push his deep religious convictions on you.

Dr. Hodge is a gifted and caring Physician. Absolutely Fantastic! There would never be enough words to fully describe our experience with him. He has changed our lives forever. Thank you!

Dr. Hodge has been a blessing to our family. Without his knowledge/expertise, genuine compassion and care for his patients, we would've lost my dad almost 2 years ago. His bedside manner is the best I've ever experienced. Its apparent to me that Gods design was for Dr. Hodge to be a physician; its shows in the care he gives his patients. We trust him so much that we've elected not to have any other physician oversee my dad's medical care despite living 2 hrs away. It's work the drive to have my dads care established with someone we & trust to have a genuine interest in doing everything possible to see his health improve. Dr. Hodge definitely stands outs among the rest! We are very thankful to have him on our side!

Dr. Hodge took care of my husband's extensive bladder cancer surgery 3 years ago and to this day, he is disease-free. There is no way we could ever say what an impact Dr. Hodge has had on our family. We will forever be grateful to him and have referred many otters to him. We are SO grateful to you Dr. Hodge! THANK YOU!!!

It did not take long for Dr. Hodge to become a trusted friend besides being my Urologist! He is a fantastic gentleman and one of the most admirable gentlemen.

Dr. Hodge is one of the most caring professionals in Lakeland. His "beside manner" is comforting even if a diagnosis brings unwanted news. His surgigal abilities are A-one.

Dr. Hodge is such an amazing doctor! He is treating my father for Prostate cancer. He is always on time, he is warm, comforting, friendly, compassionate and treats his patients like they are family or friends. I am such a worrier and he spends time explaining my dad's treatment in a very kind way. If you love your dad like I do, send him to Dr. Byron Hodge!
