About Urology Austin
At Urology Austin, our goal is to establish a comfortable, trusting relationship with every patient we serve.
Since 1962, Urology Austin has provided compassionate, progressive health care to area residents. Over the years, we recognized the benefit of becoming increasingly accessible to surrounding communities, so continued to expand our office locations throughout the Central Texas corridor. In 2008, our practice experienced considerable growth through a merger with several reputable urology practices that established Urology Austin in many rural communities.
In 2018, Urology Austin increased both its number of locations and health care providers by merging with The Urology Team, PA. The Urology Team, formerly known as Austin Urology Associates, was founded by Dr. Clary Bates in January, 1951. With this alliance, Urology Austin has positioned itself as the largest private Urology practice in the Austin metro corridor. Now with over 40 providers, Central Texas residents benefit from a comprehensive approach to urologic health care, from a highly-trained group of specialists. From initial diagnosis to treatment, patients are assured progressive, cutting edge options, whether... in-office, surgical, or therapeutic.
At Urology Austin, our physicians and advanced practice providers are committed to staying at the forefront of the latest technologies, surgical techniques, and advanced treatment options. While we’re a large, growing practice, every patient is important, heard, and treated with expert, personalized care.
