Welcome

Welcome to Northlake Urology, a partnership of board-certified urology physicians established by Dr. Stephen Watson and Dr. Harold Neitzschman.  We dedicate Northlake Urology and this site to our physician mentors.  Without their instruction and trust our achievements would not have been possible.  While career not our foremost ambition, we are fortunate to be able to make rewarding careers of the profession that we love.

We want to share our enthusiasm for our chosen specialty with our patients.  The field of urology continues to rapidly grow with advances in screening, prevention and treatment for a wide range of conditions including genitourinary cancer, female and male urinary incontinence, kidney stone disease, female urinary tract infections, prostatitis, prostate enlargement and sexual medicine.  Our practice entails behavioral therapies, herbal medicine, medical treatments, minimally invasive office-based surgical procedures, urodynamics, laparoscopic surgery, laser surgery, lithotripsy and standard surgical treatments. 

As medical advances occur, we strive to keep our patients informed and up-to-date.  Our goal is to have patients understand all options for evaluation and treatment.  The information provided here represents a brief overview of diagnosis and treatment options for common urological conditions.  This information may be used as a resource to stimulate questions about urological issues.  However, there is no substitute for direct consultation with your board-certified urologist.

Our website is always under construction. In time, we hope to provide a full complement of urological information with links to additional resources , which may be used as a guide for comprehensive urology care. 

New patients desiring to speed-up the introduction process may print one of the following new patient registration forms by clicking the appropriate link.  Take the completed form with you to the office to expedite the check-in process.  If you have problems viewing any document on our website, click this link to update Adobe Reader.
