Care Philosophy

I believe in treating patients as I would my own family. I strive to communicate effectively with patients and family members at all levels. Through extensive discussions with my patients, I develop treatment plans that are both effective and acknowledge that quality of life issues are exceptionally important. I emphasize individually tailored treatments to help patients achieve success and limit treatment-related side effects which can affect quality of life. I am sensitive to the particular issues regarding surgical treatment of genitourinary cancer, especially the physical and emotional effects on patients and their family. By fostering a doctor-patient relationship based on mutual respect and open dialogue, I encourage patients to become empowered managers of their care.

    My experience with Dr Uzzo has been nothing but positive. His expertise is well documented but his personality helps to complete the package that embodies everything one hopes for in a specialist. My concerns about my surgery evaporated with our first meeting. My consultations have each included in-depth discussions and descriptions of any test results, scans, etc. I have never felt rushed. I absoluted recommend him to anyone without reservation.
