Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Simon "We commit ourselves to providing the best urologic care in the region while holding ourselves to the highest national standards. We consider ourselves physicians, not providers. By doing so, we are dedicated to providing personal, compassionate, individual care to our patients and their families. We will make every effort to practice cost-effective urology. However, we will strive to resist attempts on the part of the managed care plans and the government to compromise what we know to be safe, state-of-the-art, compassionate care. We expect you to be an active participant in your care. Our goal is to explain the options to you. We strive to answer your questions and encourage you to be in control of medical decisions. The philosophy is in contrast with the old idea that "the doctor knows best"."
