About Our Practice

Pasadena Urology was established in 1934. We stand by an enduring commitment to providing the people of Pasadena with care that is comprehensive, compassionate, and cutting edge. Our doctors are fully trained urologists certified by the American Board of Urology and are members in good standing of the American Urological Association. We provide a wide array of in-office services both diagnostic and interventional, and are well-versed in a comprehensive suite of urologic surgical procedures performed in both the surgery center and hospital settings. We work primarily out of Huntington Memorial Hospital, where we provide emergency urologic call coverage.
