PHYSICIANS

Our Physicians

Our physicians specialize in the treatment of urological problems. After completing medical school, we chose to train in urology, which involved a two year rotation through general surgical services and at least 3 additional years of focused residency training in the diagnosis, treatment and surgeries of the genital and urinary tract.


We continue to learn, train and re-certify to keep our skills current and informed. At Southeast Urology Network, some of our doctors have advanced training or interest in certain conditions or procedures. As part of your evaluation and treatment, we will discuss and offer all the currently approved options available to you. This may mean that you will be referred to another doctor within our group or perhaps to an out of town urologist for an exceptionally unusual procedure. In all cases, we help you navigate through the complex process of reaching a decision and match you with the best doctor to take that journey.
