Specializes in Internal Medicine

A urologist is a physician who specializes in diseases of the urinary organs in females and the urinary and sex organs in males. A pcp is a primary care physician. If you have urinary symptoms, see your pcp first. If more specialty help is needed, you will be referred to a urologist.
