This urology office was very well run. The staff was pleasant, well-trained and helpful. The physicians were very impressive, caring and compassionate. The office was set up with all the modern technology needed to perform CT Scans, biopsies and many procedures in the office. It was a very positive experience. I recommend these physicians and this office to anyone needing a urologist.

No one likes to go to the urologist, but if you have to go... Dr. Lanzone is the one to visit in the Brunswick / St. Marys area. He is very compassionate and knowledgeable, and clearly explains everything. The staff was friendly and helpful. As medical visits go, it was top-notch.

Dr. Lanzone is an excellent doctor. He is well trained and explains all the medical details patiently and well. His office was well run and pleasant, although I did have to wait a bit to see him.
Tips & Advices
There is no set cost on a urology appointment, and some start at $100 and can go up. Rates vary with each doctor and office and by services rendered. When asking a physician, find out if lab work is included in a quoted cost or is extra.
Prostate cancer is cancer of the male’s prostate gland – the glands associated with reproduction. It is one of the most common cancers in men. If diagnosed early, it is also one of the most treatable.
Some insurance plans require a referral from a primary doctor if you want them to cover the costs. For other insurance plans, it is not necessary to get a referral to see a urologist.
A urologist provides a variety of tests, starting with the testing of blood and urine samples that provide information not available in a physical exam. In men, they test for PSAs (a prostate-specific antigen) in the prostate, blood counts and kidney function. Additional image testing or (sonography) of the kidney, bladder, and prostate might be needed. A cystoscopy is a procedure that allows the doctor to examine and test the lower urinary tract (bladder etc.) for cancer. Organ and prostate biopsies, renal angiograms, and urine flow tests are also common tests readily available.
A urology exam will depend on your specific condition. You can expect the standard paperwork plus a questionnaire that asks about your symptoms. You will very likely be giving a urine sample and  exam is typical. The rest of the exam will depend on whether you are male or female, and what your specific needs are. Rectal (and prostate exam and/or tests for men), blood tests, imaging of organs, and other tests might be needed based on the diagnosis.
