COVID-19 Special Information

LETTER FROM THE CHAIR

During these unprecedented times, UCSF Urology Raj S. Pruthi, MD, MHA, FACSremains committed to providing world-class care.  We are working hard to continue this commitment and still keep our patients and teams safe. Some of our efforts include replacing in-person visits with video and phone visits (called telehealth); rescheduling non-essential visits; or changes in the timing of your surgery or upcoming procedure.  Each step of your care has been carefully considered to ensure your treatments and testing are maintained while undertaking safe practices like social distancing when possible. This decision has been made by your doctor or nurse practitioner and individualized to your specific situation.

We want to keep you informed and updated and have created some resources to help you get your questions answered. I also encourage you to utilize our MyChart system to ask specific questions of your care teams.

We are still available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns.
