      Dr. Chu says

      We have a tremendous shortage of urologists in the nation. There is an even more acute shortage for urologists in our area due to the unwillingness of the newly trained urologists to come to our city. In order to keep the quality of the new associates we hire, we are unwilling to hire just any urologist. As a result there are times when the wait in our office is very long. We ask for your patience

      Why Does Experience Matter?
