Diverse staff: Given the great diversity of our community, we have multi-ethnic staff who are culturally attuned to patients and can interact with patients in their own language, helping them to better understand the care they are receiving. We believe this more personalized care enhances the patient experience at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens.
Patient-centered, high quality care from fellowship-trained specialists: The road to good urologic health requires skilled physicians, attentive staff, and a commitment to patient-centered care.
