Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bhalani "I believe good medicine should go beyond providing state-of-the-art urological care. My goal is to combine the level of surgical expertise you might expect from an academic center with the personalized touch of a community facility – all in your backyard. Urology involves delicate tissues and organs, and it raises delicate issues, such as incontinence or erectile dysfunction.

I take the time to really listen to my patients and help them make treatment decisions that best fit their lifestyle and general health. My goal is to always operate as minimally invasively as possible. When developing a treatment plan, I make sure that my patient's understand their options so they can make a fully informed choice."
