As a physician, when you recommend a patient to a specialist, you want to ensure that your patient’s continuity of care happens at the highest level and they receive the quality support and treatment they need. At Rio Grande Urology, patient care is our top priority, from the first moment they are referred from their primary care physician and connect with us all the way through treatment and follow-up.
When you refer your patients to RGU, they have access to some of the top specialists in the Southwest region, right here in the El Paso and Las Cruces areas. We treat a range of urological issues, from kidney stones, urinary tract infections, erectile dysfunction, and pediatric urologic conditions to bladder, kidney, and prostate cancer.
If you’re looking for local urology specialists, here are three reasons why Rio Grande Urology is the right choice for your patients:
1. Care Close to Home
Traveling for health care can be a significant inconvenience for many patients — juggling appointments with work, family, school, or other responsibilities can be challenging. Plus, travel can be costly. As a result, patients can sometimes put off medical appointments because it feels too inconvenient or complicated.
Ensuring our local community gets the health care they need is important to us here at Rio Grande Urology. Our two convenient locations in El Paso and Las Cruces mean patients can access quality urological care close to home instead of traveling to Albuquerque or Houston. This includes access to RGU’s Radiation Center and Cancer Center, as well as our pediatric urology team.
2. Access to Advanced Technology
Our physicians stay active with the latest updates and research in the field to give patients the best options for treatment, including access to innovative technology in urology and cancer care. We offer minimally invasive surgery on site for patients whose conditions can not be treated in other ways. Additionally, patients battling cancer have access to the Varion Halcyon machine and SpaceOAR technology, which provide more targeted, high-dose radiotherapy to allow patients who qualify to receive more effective treatment with fewer visits.
3. A Community Connection
At Rio Grande Urology, we’re proud to be a part of the community we serve. In fact, many of our physicians live in and are from the El Paso region. As a result, we understand the needs of our community. We care deeply about helping patients access quality health care close to home, so they can get back to work, family, and everyday activities as soon as possible.
