Dr. Rafael Carrion, MD
I was born in Lima, Peru but raised in Miami since the age of 11 months. My father was a urologist, originally on staff at the University of Miami and eventually retired at the age of 82. I find it a great honor to follow in his footsteps. I have been blessed with good training curriculum and guidance to excel academically in my field. A robust number of scientific publications and presentations locally, nationally, and internationally have served to continue my professional development. Being elected into the AUA leadership group is one of my greatest achievements professionally since this places me in a select group of national leaders within my field. I am married, with 3 lovely children. I am also a pet lover and currently have 3 dogs. I enjoy sports, having played competitive sports as a youth and now being a fan for soccer, football, basketball, and tennis. I enjoy traveling and the culinary arts.

in Largo, FL |
I wanted to say thank you to my amazing Urologist, Dr. Rafael Carrion, MD, from Moffitt Cancer Center/USF Health who operated on me recently. What really stands out to me is how Dr. Carrion went above and beyond to help me get through my very delicate operation. He had a very comforting bedside manner and Home Healthcare was arranged through his office and I felt my recovery was handled very well. I would highly recommend Dr. Rafael Carrion and his staff, as he is one of the best in his field.

There are no words to describe how caring Dr. Carrion is. By far is the "BEST." Dr. Carrion takes his time with you and is not in a rush. Dr. Carrion will explain everything to you in detail so you understand what he is talking about. In my eyes Dr. Carrion is certainly the "BEST" and I would recommend him to needs a Urologist.
in Sun City Center, FL |
Dr. Carrion is by far the best urologist in all the Tampa Bay area and all of central Florida . He worked with me 2+ years regarding issues related to having prostate cancer and the removal of the prostate. His experience, knowledge, guidance, recommendations, and surgery talent have given me my life back. How, you ask? I now able to function again as a normal male. A major part of Dr. Carrions skill-set is his outward caring for his patients and his genuine personality. He is my Friend!
Really listens to patients, friendly, and seeks to recognize individual's needs.
