Complete Urology Care

Urological issues can appear at any age and are sometimes an uncomfortable topic. But there is no need to suffer in silence. Mercy specializes in diagnosing and treating diseases of the urinary system in men and women and disorders of the male reproductive system. We offer a private, supportive, personal environment to help you regain your quality of life.

Urologic issues can come at any age and can be challenging to discuss. It's part of what makes finding the best urologist for you or your family an important task. Find a urologist who can understand your issue or concern and develop an appropriate care plan. Mercy's network of urology specialists collaborates to offer the full spectrum of care in urology, oncology, cancer treatment, and reconstructive surgery.

Urologists specialize in diagnosing and treating diseases of the urinary system in both men and women. They treat issues that may appear in your kidneys, bladder, adrenal glands, ureters, and urethra. Men's urinary tract and reproductive systems are intertwined, so urologists treat disorders in both. Should cancer be detected in or around the urinary tract (e.g., prostate, testicular, kidney, or bladder cancer), a urologist often is consulted. Urologists treat conditions including:

  • Problems with urination and incontinence
  • Pain or discomfort
  • Bladder or kidney cancer
  • Impotence (erectile dysfunction)
  • Infertility
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Tumors or stones in the urinary system

The best way to determine fit is to schedule an appointment and come prepared to ask questions. But how do you get that appointment in the first place? Here are four places to start:

1. Ask your primary care physician for a referral.

Your primary care provider knows your medical history and may have insight into your condition. He or she should be able to recommend the best urologist for you.

2. Consult your insurance provider.

If you have insurance, check your plan to make sure the urologist participates.

3. Check with the American Board of Urology

The American Board of Urology (ABU) sets standards for certification, recertification, and subspecialty certification in urology. Board certification with the ABU adds a unique “stamp of quality” to a urologist in practice.

4. Ask friends, family, or coworkers. 

If you know anyone who has had a urologic procedure or was treated by a urologist, ask about their experience. The first-hand experience from people you trust can go a long way in identifying a fit.


  1. Your insurance card and results from any blood or urine tests performed by your primary care doctor.
  2. A list of medications and the dosage that you regularly take.
  3. Notes on your symptoms or the pain you are experiencing.
