As a patient, you may not think about the different types of health care providers who take care of you. But when it comes to your urologic health, nurse practitioners (NPs) play an important role. Nurse practitioners are licensed independent clinicians who have advanced training in diagnosing and managing a wide range of medical conditions. They work collaboratively with physicians to provide high-quality, patient-centered care.
At Michigan Institute of Urology, NPs are an integral part of our team. They help us provide the best possible care for our patients by taking time to listen to their concerns and working with them to develop individualized treatment plans. If you have a urologic condition, chances are you will see a nurse practitioner at some point in your treatment.
