I am 66 years old. Dr. Edward Whiteside is the best doctor of any kind I have had in my life! First off, he is a genuinely nice person. Second of all , he is a caring doctor who really listens to patients as he decides what is the best treatment for them. Thirdly, he applies modern science to any required surgery. My association with him started 20 years ago when he cleared some bladder neck scarring which consequently allowed me to urinate properly. That condition has come back in the last three years to require three additional surgeries. If this science and technology were not available my ailment could kill me. If this was 100 years ago it certainly would have. But my urinary tract has created even more challenges for Dr. Whiteside. A couple years ago I had a kidney stone in my right kidney. At the same time , I had a stricture in my urethra and an enlarged prostate. He recognized that he could perform all these surgeries at once. ( I had consulted another doctor for a second opinion and all he wanted to do was the kidney stone removal without recognizing that the prostate and stricture would be a problem for me after the surgery.) Dr. Whiteside thoroughly understood the post-operative conditions I would experience. I am very grateful for his caring, his knowledge and his expertise. Dr. Whiteside performed a green light laser surgery on my prostate, he opened the stricture in my urethra, he enlarged the opening of my bladder neck by removing the scarring in that area and he removed that kidney stone mentioned earlier. I am deeply indebted to him for, as I see it, saving my life and allowing me to once again have excellent urine flow. I highly recommend Dr. Whiteside for any urinary tract problem you may have. Our kidneys are the most important organ in our bodies. We need to take good care of them. Doctors like Dr. Whiteside make that possible!

This office is very professional. The staff is so nice and attentive to your needs and Dr. Whitesides is so down to earth and friendly and makes you feel so completely at ease. Susan did my testing and made me feel so comfortable and she was so friendly. I would hands down definitely recommend this office to someone else. I had an excellent experience at Urology Associates.

I’ve been going to Dr Whitesides for almost 16 years and have been extremely satisfied. He operated on my bladder about 13 years ago and I’ve never had any problems. He is very attentive to my many urinary issues, is super nice, easy to talk to, explains things thoroughly and takes lots of time for questions. The staff is super nice, very efficient and there is rarely much wait time.

I've been a patient of Dr. Russell for a number of years. He was always such a pleasant person to interact with, answered all my question and made me feel at ease. I was so sorry to hear of his retirement, but will continue with Dr. Point of your practice in anticipation of continued exceptional care.

My visit went particularly well. Virtually no wait in the waiting room, pleasantly greeted by Dr. Russell's nurse Diane. Medication history updated, blood drawn, and a very short wait for Dr. Russell. This is an excellent group with high standards. I highly recommend them!

I had been a patient of Dr. Lovette's for years, so when he left I chose to go with Dr. Whitesides. Best decision I have ever made. He and his staff are so concerned re: your problem. He and his staff are an asset to this practice. They are so quick to return a call. I have a friend who is in need of an urologist, so I have referred Dr. Whitesides to her. I know she will like him as much as I do.
