The urology team at FirstMed is dedicated to caring for the health of your kidneys, bladder, prostate, and entire urogenital system.

Urology at FirstMed

Urology is the branch of medicine that focuses on issues involving the kidneys, ureters and bladder, as well as the penis, testes and prostate. The urinary system is vital not only for producing urine, but it also makes up your body's delicate and complex filtration system. Additionally, care of the male reproductive system is important for genital and overall men's health. Our urology service at FirstMed is equipped to provide treatments for a broad range of urological diagnoses.​

Common urological conditions

The urogenital system is delicate and can be compromised by many factors such as stress, injury and infection. There are several ways that urological problems can manifest themselves:


Male Reproductive System

  • Prostate enlargement/disease

  • Erectile or sexual dysfunction

  • Testicular tumors (most common malignancy among men under 45)

  • Prostate cancer (second most common in males over 45)

  • Epididymitis

  • Circumcision and phimosis

  • Anorgasmia

  • Blood in semen (hematospermia)

  • Varicocele

  • Premature ejaculation

  • Testosterone issues


Urinary Tract

  • Cystitis/urinary tract infection (UTI)

  • Urinary incontinence and other retention issues (urgent or frequent urination)

  • Hematuria (blood in the urine)

  • Kidney stones

  • Pelvic floor dysfunction and disorders

  • Kidney disease

  • Bedwetting (enuresis)

What to expect at your urology visit

During your visit, there are several steps your may request from your urologist for him to better understand your case:

  • Interview: the urological examination usually begins with an interview to identify the main problem. It involves taking a urological and medical history.

  • Physical examination: palpitation of the kidneys, abdomen, and genitals. A digital rectal examination may be performed to measure the consistency and size of the prostate.

  • Urine test: may be ordered to provide proof of infection or hematuria.

  • Lab tests: kidney function, PSA, and other exams may be ordered to measure the state of your urological functions.

  • Diagnostics: if needed, the kidney, bladder, and other urological organs can be visualized with ultrasound or a CT scan can be arranged.

Men's Health Screenings

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men. Typically, it grows slowly and is initially confined to the prostate gland where it may not cause serious harm. While most types of prostate cancer grow slowly, needing minimal or even no treatment, other types are aggressive and may spread to other organs quickly.

Why is important to get checked every year?

Prostate or testicular cancer that is detected early has a better chance of successful, less invasive treatment. The examinations are painless and take only a few minutes of your valuable time.


Q: Can my urologist provide an ultrasound for me?

A: Some urologists may give you a kidney or bladder ultrasound with images and a report, other may use the ultrasound just to understand more but will not include a detailed write-up or images in your medical report, while some urologists may not perform an ultrasound at all. If you need a urological ultrasound, please specify this when you request an appointment.

​Q: Will the urologist provide a prescription?

A: If the doctor's evaluation deems necessary a medical prescription, one will be provided for you at the time of the appointment.

Q: I think I may have a UTI. Can I just get antibiotics for this?

A: If you have a UTI, the first thing the urologist or general practitioner will prescribe is a urine test and a urinalysis with an antibiogram. Remember: the best sample for analysis is the first urine of the morning, so if you are having symptoms, get a container from your neighborhood pharmacy to collect your sample for analysis. The doctor might give you a prescription to relieve your symptoms and then update it following the lab results.

If your symptoms intensify before your lab result is ready or do not respond to the therapy prescribed, a visit to the emergency room may be necessary to treat your case.

Q: How long will it take for my urine test results to come back from the lab?

A: The urine strip test usually comes back within 1-2 days, whereas the urinalysis and antiobiogram can take minimum of 3-4 days or longer.

Q: How much does the visit cost?

A: A typical urology visit is €150.00 with FirstMed Value Card (discount card) for cash payers.
