Dr. Clary Bates originally set up a private Urology practice in Austin on January 2, 1951. At that time there were three Board Certified Urologists in Austin with a population of 110,000 residents. Physicians numbered slightly fewer than 100 with approximately a third of those being employed by the State Health Department and other state institutions in the city.
It is our goal to provide our patients with the highest level of medical and surgical treatment, and the value of a close patient-physician relationship. It is our practice philosophy to consult with each other to consistently provide the highest level of treatment for all patients. If you need surgery, our physicians will make sure you are placed into the hands of the surgeon who is best suited for your procedure. This group philosophy and team approach also means that if you have an urgent need we will find you the most available doctor to be sure you are taken care of.
