This content was provided by Dr. Zafar "Our Purpose
Our purpose as an organization is to give high quality care to both male and female patients in the specialty of Urology. Our services include diagnosis and treatment of bladder, kidney, and prostate cancer, treatment of interstitial cystitis, chronic urinary tract infections, benign enlargement of the prostate, erectile dysfunction, sexually transmitted diseases, male and female incontinence, male infertility, and male sterilization.
Personallized Care – Each patient receives customized care, specific to their diagnosis and situation. We do not take a "one size fits all" approach to the care our patients receive. We treat the diagnosis and treatment of each patient with their individual needs in mind.
Flexibility – We operate our offices to meet the needs of the wide variety of patients we see. We have extended office hours, and are open Saturdays to accommodate all of our patients. We also accept most major medical insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid (Title 19). If necessary, we will work with a patient's insurance company to get approval for a procedure.
Timeliness – We do not believe in making a patient wait. Whether it is for an appointment to see the doctor or scheduling a test at another office, we understand that our patients' time is valuable. In fact, often established patients can be seen the same day they call in with an issue that needs timely attention."
