If you’re a parent living in Northwest Florida or Southern Alabama, you’re close to the area’s only fellowship-trained pediatric urologist.

Fellowship training in pediatric urology means that our urology specialist has additional medical training in children’s urological issues and is able to provide medical and surgical care for infants, children, and teens with a wide variety of urinary tract conditions.

Compassionate Care for Your Child

Along with an expertise in diagnosing and treating pediatric urological conditions, comes an understanding of how these conditions can impact your child and family’s life.

We strive to provide your child with personal and compassionate care. Children’s urologic conditions can sometimes be complex, so we do all we can to make sure that you understand and are comfortable with any treatment options.

Among the services we provide are:
  • complete urologic assessment
  • pediatric gynecologic assessment
  • reviews of voiding studies, voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG: X-ray images of a person's urinary system), ultrasounds and other radiologic studies

Expertise in Pediatric Urologic Surgery

If surgery is needed for your child, we realize that you want all the information possible in order to make the best decision, so we take the time to explain each option, always looking for the least invasive method for faster healing and return to normal activities.
