You spoke - we listened. You'll speak ... we'll listen!!
We are very excited to announce our commitment to speaking with every patient or community member that calls in to Northwoods Urology. We have launched a full time dedicated call center, with the technology and capability to make sure that when you call us - you speak with a person.
We have put a lot of work into trying to make sure that we communicate as best as we can with you, our patients and community. We have electronic and printed clinical summaries available, we have upgraded appointment reminders, and most importantly we have happy and smiling staff ready to greet you everyday!
The readers have spoken and Dr. Henry and Northwoods Urology were voted Best Urologists in the Woodlands by Living Magazine! The best part for us is that this win was completely unsolicited - we didn't ask our patients for votes, we didn't post requests for feedback, we didn't even advertise in the magazine ... readers just recognized us as the best in the area, and voted accordingly!
Effective Birth Control
Over 500,000 vasectomy procedures are done each year in the United States. Vasectomy is a simple, safe surgical procedure for permanent male fertility control. The tube (called a "vas") which leads from the testicle is cut and sealed in order to stop sperm from leaving. The procedure usually takes about 15 to 20 minutes. Since the procedure simply interrupts the delivery of sperm it does not change hormonal function - leaving sexual drive and potency unaffected.
The "No-Scalpel" Technique
One area that we as a practice are consistently focusing on is trying to enhance the patient experience. This fits well with our "innovative, progressive, compassionate" theme in that those three traits are focused on trying to ensure that each patient has a great experience and interaction with our practice.
The approaching Holiday this week gave me pause to think - beyond "Love of Country", what is patriotism really about? I believe that ultimately, in the end, you are talking about loyalty. Loyalty to the beliefs that made our country great, loyalty to your family and the opportunity available to Americans, loyalty to freedom, and rights, and to the citizenry and our forefathers. One interesting thing, to me, about the public debates about privacy, or party, or values is that ALL sides of those debates share love of America, and Patriotism.
5% of the U.S. population will develop kidney stones during their lifetime. If you have or believe you might have a stone, we are pleased to be able to help with the best treatment and options in The Woodlands, Huntsville, Kingwood, and surrounding communities.
Today, however, I want to point out our patient education resources, which contains lots of useful links, information, and advice related to your health. Particularly, I will highlight our section on prevention of kidney stones... It is summer and the hot weather and dehydration can contribute to stone formation.
