Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Valvo's Care Philosophy

As a solo Urologist practicing in the community for over forty years, I have a great deal of experience in dealing with all phases of Urological disorders. To accomplish the best care possible it is incumbent that communication between the patient and doctor is always available. An unhurried environment will best allow the correct decision to be made.
