We are delighted to meet you and thank you for visiting the Department of Urology at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville. When you call us for a doctor’s appointment, we will first ask you when you are available and work around your convenience because you always come first!

Our physicians are fellowship-trained subspecialists who continue to contribute to the field of urology through teaching and cutting-edge research. Our doctors’ outstanding knowledge and surgical skills is complimented by their compassion, empathy and bedside care for their patients. Several of our physicians are not only experts in their fields, but also pioneers who influence change for higher quality patient care.

We offer the most advanced surgical and non-surgical care for our patients. Our surgeons perform state-of-the-art, advanced and complex reconstructive, stone and robotic surgery.

Our cancer patients get to enjoy the comfort of total clinical care from diagnosis, surgery, chemotherapy, immunotherapy and palliative care in one clinic directed by the same physician. The unique complete cancer care clinic model allows necessary continuity of care, improves communication between providers, and above all, provides comfort and confidence to patients and their families when and where most needed!

In addition to having immediate and unfettered access to their health care providers, our patients will have opportunities to participate in up-to-date clinical trials and studies.

While providing the best care for patients, our department also trains the highest quality next-generation doctors and urologists, and we remain actively involved in basic science and clinical research.

Thank you for your interest. If you have any questions, please contact us.
