The Division of Urology at Scott & White Medical Center in Temple is offering video visits for select patients considering surgical treatments for urologic disorders.
Video visits enable you to talk with a urologic specialist to determine if surgery might be an option for you.
Video visits are available for some patients with the following conditions:
- Kidney Cancer - for those patients considering laparoscopic or robotic treatment of kidney tumors
- Prostate Cancer - for those men considering robotic prostatectomy
- Prostate enlargement - for those men considering surgery for an enlarged prostate (TURP or other laser prostate procedure). Surgery to be discussed at consultation - HOLEP (Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate)
If you are unsure if a video visit is covered by your insurance, or if you do not know if you need a referral or authorization, please contact your insurance provider for verification. If you are a Medicare beneficiary, you will need to sign an advanced beneficiary notice, with understanding that you would be responsible for the consultation services.
If you are interested in a video visit, please email and include your name, date of birth and insurance carrier.
