After a difficult and challenging case, I had a Lithotripsy with Dr. Coogan, Took alot of time to explain the procedure, Instead of kidney stones it was pancreatic stones. It was a case that was outside of the expertise of most urologists, but he took the case, gave me a clear understanding of what the procedure would be, and what might happen. I am very pleased with this Doctor, I would not hesitate to recommend him, He is also very capable of working with other doctors in the rush group

I was diagnosed with a very agressive Prostate Cancer in October 2008. Dr. Chris Coogan diagnosed and did my surgery via Lamproscopic/Robotic. Seven years and 4 month later I am still cancer free. Dr. Coogan saved my life!!

Why Does Experience Matter?

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. Coogan's Care Philosophy

I basically treat general urology problems, but I specialize in urological cancers -that is prostate, kidney, bladder, testes cancer. One of the unique things about prostate cancer - it comes in a lot of different what we call grades. So some cancers spread very quickly, but other cancers are very slow to spread and aren't likely to spread at all. Carefully selected patients - you can just watch them and make sure that the disease doesn't change in any way. And they typically won't need any treatment at all. We've really minimized the side effect of many of our treatments while really maximizing and improving their effectiveness. And the benefits of this are to the patient in speeding their recovery while maintaining the same efficacy that is the success of the treatment. Probably the most rewarding part of urology is seeing these patients long-term, and watching them - not only understand their disease process and how to prevent it possibly - but also living a full quality of life after such treatments.
