Care Philosophy

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.

Very efficient and professional office. Entire staff is top-notch and made going through my procedure very comforting and reliable. Dr. Bhalani has a excellent bedside manor and was a pleasure working with.
Atlanta, GA |
I completely trust Dr. Bhalani. My surgery and overall experience was a success. I just want to thank him for being so wonderful and for being such a talented surgeon. I had been living with incontinence and wearing diapers for more than 15 years. I found this article online about urinary sphincters. My wife searched and found Dr. Bhalani who is one of the few doctors in the area to treat my problem. I am very pleased with how he gave me back my "dry" life.
Griffin, GA |
I met Dr. Bhalani in 2017. It was a self referal from google as one of the best urologist. He is very patient and he explains everything in detail. He is very experienced in his specialty.He always chooses the best options for me.
Houston, TX |
Very friendly and down to earth.
in Lawrenceville, GA |
Dr. Bhalani is very personable and knowledgeable. He explains everything in layman's terms so you understand. I'm so glad I found him, he got rid of my aggressive bladder cancer. Give him a call, you'll be glad you did.

Dr Bhalani is a caring and compassionate provider. His unique ability to explain the issues at hand in a simple manner is refreshing. His staff is amazing as well. Both Angie and I are fortunate to have him as our Urologist
Atlanta, GA |

in SUGAR HILL, GA |
Everyone from the front desk staff to the doctor that I saw were kind, courteous, and helpful. This was my 6th time visiting the clinic and I am happy to have such a great place to go
in Sugar Hill, Ga |
I highly recommend Dr. Bhalani. You could not ask for a better doctor. He is genuinely caring, friendly and listens to you intently. I feel fortunate to have found such a great doctor to treat my IC.
in Alpharetta, GA |
I switched Urologists late last year. Dr. Bhalani has been great to work with. He listens and gives informed answers. Although I am mindful of his time, I never feel like he is in a rush to see the next patient. He performed a prostate procedure on me and it has given me significant relief. I feel like he is up to speed on the best treatment options available and recommend him without hesitation.
Buford, GA |
Dr Bhalani is one of the best doctors you will ever see in your life. He is calm, caring, understanding and very knowledgable. He takes the time to listen, looks you in the eye, and answered our endless questions. I wish all doctors were like him. I had prostate cancer and with his robotic skills I not only had all the cancer removed but also preserved all my functions. Extremely lucky to have found him.
in Cumming, GA |
Dr. Bhalani is very patient and answers all questions willingly and understandably. He is friendly and appears to care about his patients. My surgery went well and I am recovering nicely.
in Marietta, GA |
I came to Dr. Bhalani for symptoms of BPH in April and we decided to go with the UroLift surgery. I had the surgery in May and I am 100% satisfied. Dr. Bhalani was professional. He explained the procedure, and he did a terrific job with my surgery. If you desire relief from BPH, I suggest you look into in the UroLift procedure and Dr. Bhalani. You won't be disappointed!
in Cumming, GA |
Recommended by PCP and very happy with Dr Bhalani's care.
Duluth, GA |
Dr Bhalani recently took care of my mother and he was amazing. I have attended many of my mother's appointments with various doctors but Dr Bhalani stands out as the best. He is extremely patient and thorough. And even available for questions that have come up after the appointment. And even better he fixed my mom's very frustrating problem which has improved her everyday life so much. As a bonus, he is able to speak Spanish which helps my mom properly explain her issues. Very thankful.
in Cumming, GA |
I found Dr Bhallani very knowledgeable and patient. I came to him for a second consult and i am glad i did. I have rarely found a specialist doctors taking so much time to make you understand the reasons behind the issues you are having and what all can be done. He understood my frustration and did not rush. The whole staff at Advanced urology was kind and compassionate. I would recommend Dr Bhallani and this facility to anyone looking for a personal touch and good medical care !
in Johns Creek, GA |
Dr. Bhalani is one of the best doctors I have had. He is an expert in urology and also a wonderful person who is friendly and caring. He always listens patiently, gives excellent explanations, calms me and finds effective solutions to resolve my issues. I feel so comfortable under his care. I would recommend Dr. Bhalani and Advanced Urology to anyone seeking a good urologist.
in Snellville, GA |
I highly recommend Dr. Bhalani and Advanced Urology. From my very first visit , Dr. Bhalani was supportive and actively involved in my healthcare. He answered every question (and I had plenty) in a professional and straightforward manner--which I really appreciated. He and his staff took care of everything. I am a very satisfied patient. Thank you Dr. Bhalani.
Cumming, GA |
Dr Bhalani is the most caring doctor I have ever met. He treated me for an infection and enlarged prostrate. His bedside manners are warm and very approachable which unfortunately is rare these days. He even spent much of his valuable time explaining the diagnosis and treatment plan with my children who live out of town and sometimes having to repeat the same conversation. But he always made us feel like his top priority. I have nothing but highest praise for Dr Bhalani. Thank you.
in Lawrenceville, GA |
Outstanding bedside manner, knowledge and application of that knowledge. He has been treating me for 2 years now and I highly recommend him to my family and friends. I don't believe I could have found a better doctor in the field of Urology.
in Johns Creek, GA |
Loved the whole experience!!! Dr. Bhalani is kind, understanding and patience with any and all questions you have.
in Duluth, GA |
I found Dr Bhalani after a hospitalization and Congestive Heart Failure due to BPH and a resulting total blockage. He gave me a full explanation and beneficial outpatient treatment until we could get on the schedule for a bi-polar TURP. The operation was very successful and I am well on the way to a full recovery. I am very pleased with all aspects of my treatment by Dr Bhalani and Advanced Urology.
in Gainesville, GA |
Dr. Bhalani is the best urologist I have experienced. He was able to quickly diagnose my problems and effectively treat my symptoms. It was all done in 3 days. Prior to that I suffered for 5 months while waiting on a local urologist to find the cause of my problems. I strongly recommend Dr. Bhalani to anyone who may be having urological problems.
Lawrenceville |
Dr. Bhalani proved to be very, very professional, and personal in every respect. Great bedside manner, and very knowledgeable and skilled. Compared to other urologists I have seen, he ranks at the top with an excellent rating. His office is run very professionally as well, with well trained, courteous, and caring staff. He has my recommendation.
Lawrenceville, GA |
Dr. Bhalani is an amazing doctor. He explained everything to me regarding my issues and treatment options. He is the best doctor I have ever had.

My husband and I live in Newnan so we drive an hour and half to see Dr.Bhalani and his staff. My husband was told by the doctors in Newnan to see a Urologist but we could not get an appointment anytime soon so I started searching the internet. Not only did I find your office but they had same day or next day appointments. I called and was given one the next morning. We will continue to use Dr. Bhalani to treat my husband. The staff at Advanced Urology cannot be beat.
Duluth, GA |
Great and easy experience. Dr. Bhalani was very nice and spent quality time with me and my family to explain my procedure. Felt very confident with his skills and he was invested in helping me to get better.
in Chicago, IL |
Dr Bhalani first treated me in Chicago when I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He did my surgery using a robot and not only am I cancer free but I do not leak and can still be intimate. Trifecta! We wanted to write this review to let people in Atlanta know what a gem they have. My wife and I even travel from Chicago to see him. Don't let his young face fool you, he is so smart, humble, and has the best bedside manner. He will definitely be my first and LAST urologist!
Norcross, GA |
I recently moved to Ga. from La. and had to find a new urologist. Dr. Bhalani was recommended by my primary care physician, and I couldn't be more pleased. Dr. Bhalani told me of a new BPH treatment using steam. The information from Dr. Bhalani and my own research indicated the procedure had better results and fewer side effects than laser surgery. I had the surgery one month ago and my condition is vastly improved. And, it is projected to get even better over the next six months. Great outcome.
in Cumming, GA |
Not happy w/ last BIG metro ATL Urology practice & Dr. for several reasons (managing yearly check-ups & Low-T). They were very much reactive, not consistent, no follow-ups, nightmare to schedule & overall not interested in my needs & concerns. So 11/16 I fired them & looked for a new modern practice. SO glad I found Advanced Urology, Dr. Bhalani & staff! Outstanding service since my 1st call & visit (two days after calling). They are very organized, caring & professional. HIGHLY Recommend!
in Atlanta, GA |
Dr. Bhalani is an excellent doctor. I went to see him on an emergency basis for a kidney stone and he got me in and treated me very quickly. During the process, he examined me and recommended a biopsy which revealed I had early stage prostate cancer. Due to Dr. Bhalani's diligence in detecting this problem my prognosis for treatment is very favorable. I highly recommend him to anyone.
in Johns Creek |
Dr. Bhalani is a life saver...literally!!! I spent too many years walking around nervous that I might have an accident with just sneezing or running around with my grandkids. But from the minute I met Dr. B I knew that he was going to change my life. He is so nice and thorough and made sure I was able to have all my questions answered. My surgery was flawless and I was completely fixed. My only regret is that I did not find him sooner in life. Thank you, Dr. Bhalani and your amazing staff!
Alpharetta, GA |
AMAZING!! Dr. Bhalani has changed my life. I started having old man problems and was referred to another urologist but received no relief. It got worse so I was referred to Dr. Bhalani who was new to the area. And I have not looked back. Dr. Bhalani was able to diagnose the issue and used the latest treatment with steam to shrink my prostate. And now I am off all my meds and I feel like I'm 20 years old again (at least my prostate does). Hope my experience can change someone else's life too!
in Lawrenceville, GA |
An excellent doctor! Very good at his profession. Listens to his patients and is compassionate about their care.
in Lawrenceville, GA |
Dr. Bhalani are patient and really listens to his patients. He doesn't stop until he really get to the bottom of what the problem(s) maybe and what's causing the problems. He also explains in a way that you may understand what going on.
in Suwanee, GA |
Dr Balani is simply the most awesome doc and the only urologist you should ever go to! Expert in latest technologies, super confident, extremely patient, caring. He not only delivered what he promised but he did it without causing pain, explaining in great detail the procedure. He treated me with respect and politeness inspite of my grouchiness, anxiety, fears, tears. He was on top of the my issue, very thorough with each and every procedures/tests/prescriptions/post-ops. Extremely satisfied
in Suwanee, GA |
Don't go by super young looks, not only an excellant, super confiden doctor, trained cutting edge technology, Dr Balani is good human being. He was patient, caring, compassionate, answered all my stupid questions without judging, allayed my fears, expertly removed the stent in few seconds before I could realize it even. He was confident that he would be able to get to the stone and he did. I came with tears, fears and left with a smile! I would strongly recommend everyone to go to Dr Balani!
in Lawrenceville, GA |
More than a good doctor, I value the fact that you were a good listener. More than being just professionals, I value the fact that your staff’s attitude was exceptional… especially with my sense of humor! My worst nightmares eventually morphed into a dream of recovery, all thanks to a wonderful team that forever changed my quality of life. Thank you Dr Bhalani and everyone! I certainly vouch that your abilities and professionalism are unmatched. Can't say I'm going to miss you all, though. Ha!
in Cumming, GA |
I will highly recommend Dr. Bhalani to all my friends and family. He is very polite and explains everything in great detail so that I could understand. He never rushed through his appointments with me, he genuinely seemed like he cared.

I have seen Dr. Bhalani twice regarding elevated PSA. The staff was professional and efficient, and Dr. Bhalani did a great job of educating and counseling me regarding my PSA level, diagnostic approach and future considerations. I was extremely comfortable with him and will not hesitate to use him again.
in Stone Mountain Ga. |
Dr. Bhalani is a very people orientated physician. He has the ability to not only listen to my concerns but being able to explain the "corrective actions" in a way that is well understood. He is a "down to earth" physician that has left me with a peace of mind after every visit. I am very happy to have him as my physician, and would recommend him to anyone.
