Preserving Independent Urology: LUGPA’s First Decade
Dr. Gary Kirsh, president of The Urology Group, was a co-author in this article, recently published in Reviews in Urology.
“Since its initial charter as a trade organization representing the interests of urology practices of 10 physician members or more, LUGPA has expanded its mission to include smaller group practices that are equally committed to providing integrated, comprehensive services to patients suffering from genitourinary disease.
