Welcome

Monterey Urology CenterDear Friend,

Most likely, you were referred to me by your family doctor, internist or OB/GYN. Even so, I realize that you probably had a choice of several urologists. I really appreciate you choosing me and promise to do all I can to help you.

Whether you were referred to me or decided to come on your own, most people don’t visit a urologist until they have pain or other urinary or reproductive problems that are really worrying them. Whatever your problems are, it is important that we identify them right away … then get to work treating them.

When you come to see me, I promise to treat you like an important individual, not just a name or a number. I’ll take the time to listen to your concerns and find out about your symptoms. I will probably run a series of tests to both identify your problems and rule out more serious concerns. As soon as we have an accurate diagnosis, I may prescribe medicine or other treatment that should get you feeling better.

And there’s more. As your urologist, I realize that it is my responsibility to keep up with the latest developments in my field so that I can give you the best care possible. That is why I take continuing education classes and am active in professional organizations.

But even more important than my training and experience is my wonderful staff. From the friendly person who answers the phone, to my nurse and office manager, I am exceptionally proud of the people who make up my team. Not only are they skilled professionals, but they are warm, caring people who will go all out to make you feel welcome and comfortable in my office.

Why do I do all these things? The answer is simple. I want to build a relationship with you based on your trust and satisfaction. Again, I am very honored that you chose me as your urologist. It is my goal that each time you leave my office, you will feel really good about every aspect of your care and happy that you chose me as your urologist. If there is ever anything I can do for you – answer a question, explain something more clearly or reschedule an appointment, please don’t hesitate to call my office.

Sincerely,

J. Anthony Shaheen, M.D.
