We’re here to help, so if you have any questions or are unsure about any stage of your treatment, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Making your first appointment
You are welcome to make an appointment directly with Urology Bay of Plenty but we do recommend being referred by your GP who will provide us with your background records and test results. By being referred you may avoid any unnecessary costs for re-testing and we should be able to see you sooner to get your treatment underway.
At your first consultation, we will review any referral notes and talk through your diagnosis. At the end of your consultation you can expect to have a clear understanding of your urological condition, the next step and time frames.
Following diagnosis of your condition a treatment pathway will be developed and communicated to you. During your treatment our team are always available to answer your questions.
Between treatment cycles or at the end of your treatment or surgery, we remain available to answer any questions or concerns.
Urology Bay of Plenty are committed to world class surgical techniques and technology backed by an experienced and caring team of health professionals.
