Teamwork with referring providers allows us to deliver the best possible care for our patients. We dedicate ourselves to providing assistance and guidance to our colleagues for all urologic issues.
Stone Disease: Please have the patient bring any imaging studies (on CD or hard films) with them to their appointment. This is especially important for patients with kidney or bladder stones, cyst, or tumors.
Hematuria (microscopic or gross): If not contraindicated, please arrange for a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis with and without contrast. If possible, order the study with delayed images (delayed cuts) in order to visualize the renal pelvis and ureters to identify any filling defects as the contrast drains down in to the bladder. This is sometimes referred to as a “CT Urogram”.
Elevated PSA: If the patient has a history of PSA’s drawn in the past, please fax or have the patient bring as many results as possible. Often the “PSA velocity” or rise in PSA over time is very important information.
Recurrent UTI’s: Often these patients have a series of urine analyses and cultures performed before arriving to see us in our office.If possible, please send all urine studies and cultures in order for us to see how often infections are confirmed, and which bacterial organisms are isolated each time.
Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (Enlarged Prostate): It is helpful if the patient has a voiding diary or documentation relating to the length of symptoms. These details will be obtained and verified at the time of visit.
Voiding Dysfunction: Often these patients have a series of urine analyses and cultures performed before arriving to see us in our office. If possible, please send all urine studies so we can rule out infection as a cause. This will save time, money, and effort.
Please feel free to call us at any time in our offices for questions. There should always be a provider available to return your call or even answer your questions on the spot.
