Patient Requests

The American Urological Association (AUA) serves its members and their patients by advancing professional education, research and health policy issues. The Urology Care Foundation, the official foundation of the AUA, partners with physicians, researchers, healthcare professionals, patients, caregivers, families and the public to support and improve the prevention, detection and treatment of urologic disease through research and education. is the Urology Care Foundation patient education website that provides information on urologic health and disease, as well as information for patients and others wishing to locate urologists in their local areas.

Neither the AUA nor the Urology Care Foundation respond directly to patient requests for referrals. Nor does the AUA or Foundation render opinions regarding diagnosis, treatment or standard of care. Personal questions and concerns should be discussed with a urologist.

Persons requesting standard information on urologic diseases and conditions should visit or call the Urology Care Foundation at 800-828-7866.
