Wishing Success to our Athletes at the 2018 Winter Olympics!

The 2018 Winter Olympics are on their way.  Its an amazing to see all the athletes doing their very best!

At this point many of us have already spent hours on end rooting for our favorites at the 2018 Winter Olympics.  We have seen a few gold medals come in already for snow boarding, skating and and a few other events.  We enjoy the excitement and the unifying nature of sports.  In the end, like music and food, sports bring us together.  Even after our favorites are off the picture a good sport well played is a joy to watch.

We hope all athletes involved in the games have the greatest of times.  Its not every day a person can say they competed with the best each country can offer.  Those few who can say it, even if they don’t make the podium, should be most proud. We root for all of you!



LET IT SNOW! is the theme.

Transit was fair this morning while getting in.  Our office is open and ready to see you.  New York is such a great city.   You can expect there to be so much activity any day, even under a snow storm.  We keep plowing along because nothing stops us.  For those of you who had to stay home, keep warm and enjoy the day off.


Happy New Year 2018!!!

New York Urological Associates PC wants to wish you a very happy NEW YEAR. 2017 is closing and with it we turn a page to whats new.  Let 2018 be a time of reflection and improvement for all of us.

Best regards and see you soon!



Happy Holidays 2017!

Joy to all Happy Holidays to all!

Holiday season is here.  Many of us are in the middle of the Christmas rush getting things ready for the big day.  This is a time when people are joyful and warm.  A time when family, friends and companies celebrate in one way or another.  We all get together and share food, drinks laughs and sometimes even presents.  Santa Claus multiplies into Secret Santa and Kris Kringle and other iterations while we create fond memories of this years festivities.  Whichever way or holiday you celebrate, enjoy, have fun with others!

Aside from celebration, this is also a time of reflection and meditation.  This is as good a time as any to think about what goes on around us, the rest of the world and see how we can contribute towards making things better.  This is a great time to show good will and kindness to others, not the only time to do so, but a start.  This is a time to help others where and when we’re able and do a good things for one another.

New York Urological Associates PC, wishes all a very happy holiday season 2017.



The Doctors and Staff at New York Urological Associates PC wish everyone a very HAPPY 4th of JULY.  May you enjoy the day in good health and in the company of those you love.


Pre-Authorization for Prescriptions


Note that many plans require authorization for prescriptions.  It seems that even commonly prescribed medications require it.  Unfortunately, this way your insurance makes the process of providing you with your needed medications most time consuming.  Insurance suggest that the doctor calls to obtain authorization.  However, it is a most time consuming process.  More often than not the doctors have several requests for pre-authorization at hand. Rather than making a call, our practice prefers to fill out a pre-authorization form.  These are normally provided by your insurance and contain all information and/or questions pertinent to your particular prescription.

For that reason, if needed we ask you to obtain the required PRE-AUTHORIZATION forms from your PRESCRIPTION INSURANCE and have them forwarded to our office for the doctor’s review and fulfillment.  This will allow the doctor to tend to the patients at the office as opposed to being held on the phone for several minutes a day jumping through insurance imposed processes.

Without the pre-authorization forms you will have to pay for your prescriptions out of pocket.  Also, some plans have no coverage for certain medications.  You’re welcome to have the insurance fax these to our main fax line:




Technological woes, when it rains, it pours!

You would think that with today’s technology there would be fewer problems with those services we depend on.  Phone service, as ubiquitous as it is, it seems to fail more often than we’d like.  We’ve had phone problems in the past and have had repairs done multiple times.  However as the technology  it relies on ages, the problems just resurface.  Phone service providers at this point are putting most of their efforts in updating to new tech than maintaining and servicing old hardware.  Whenever there are phone problems, with the old hardware, its more difficult to get it repaired quickly and efficiently.   Today is one of those days.  We hope it sorts out shortly.  Kindly communicate with us by email whenever possible. We’ll be happy to address your concerns.
