Sensitive Areas Need Special Care

GHS Regional Urology is a medical and surgical specialty that specializes in treating conditions affecting the urinary tracts of men and women and the reproductive systems of men. Surgeons at Greenville Health System are using new techniques and exploring innovative avenues for treating urologic problems and diseases of the urologic system, from prostate cancer to kidney stones.

GHS is at the forefront of robotic surgery—a ground-breaking alternative to conventional open surgery and traditional laparoscopy. Advantages of robotic surgery include shorter hospitalization, reduced pain and discomfort, and faster return to normal activities.

Appointments

We see all patients on an appointment basis, and ask that you call in advance so that we may reserve time for you. The office phone number is (864) 797-7450. We try to see all patients on time and request that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately. Please try to give us 24 hours notice so that this time may be given to another patient.

Hours of Operation

Our offices are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Patient Information

All prescriptions and authorizations for renewals should be requested during normal office hours. Antibiotics and narcotic pain medications will NOT be refilled over the phone.

Healthcare insurance is intended to cover some, but not all, of the cost of your treatment. Most plans include a co-insurance, a deductible, and other expenses which must be paid by the patients.

If you have insurance, please bring your plan information with you to your first visit. We will work with you to assure that you receive the maximum benefits to which you are entitled. At the end of your visit, you will receive all of the information necessary to file your insurance claim. If you have questions regarding your coverage, please ask a member of our business office staff, and we will work with you to find the answer.

In the event of a medical emergency, dial 911 or go immediately to the emergency room of the nearest hospital and ask them to contact your doctor. If the situation is not a medical emergency and arises while the office is closed, telephone (864) 797-7450, and the answering service will promptly forward your message to the doctor on call. You will receive a response as quickly as possible.

If an urgent situation arises while the office is open, call the office. The doctor will be in touch with you either directly or through office personnel to give you instructions on where to go for care.

We make every effort to keep down the cost of your medical care. You can help by paying for treatment at the time of your visit. If your treatment program requires several visits, you will be given an estimate and asked to make financial arrangements with a member of our business office staff.
