Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Alavi "I chose the specialty of Urology because it allows me to help patients, both as a surgeon and as a doctor. New robotic and minimally invasive surgical techniques are allowing me to create dramatic improvements in many patients' quality of life; yet equally rewarding is the chance to go beyond simply offering a surgical solution, and care for those patients over a lifetime. Many of my patients will never require the skills of a surgeon, yet I find tremendous satisfaction in getting to know them as people, developing a personal relationship, and helping them improve their health. I believe that excellent diagnostic skills are only part of what makes a good doctor. The second and perhaps even more important element is the willingness to care for a patient like they were your own family member, your mother, father, brother or sister. Before deciding to become a doctor, I graduated from Princeton with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering. With that background, it is easy to understand my interest in new technologies, such as robotics, and the benefits it offers patients. Yet what I've learned as a doctor--and the reason I left engineering--is that nothing can replace the satisfaction of caring for and building relationships with people."

Excellent office with plenty of parking which has been hard to find in the area. (Busy medical area) Dr. Alavi was a really nice and down to earth doctor. Office staff were friendly and work hard to maintain a busy office.
