Dr. Engel is a Clinical Professor of Urology at George Washington University, the Director of Urologic Robotic Surgery at George Washington University Hospital, and previously served as the Vice Chairman of Urology there between 2008 and 2013. His clinical interests lie largely in the minimally invasive management of urologic cancers (prostate, kidney, bladder, etc.) and enlarged prostate (BPH).
Another major focus is complex urologic reconstructive surgery such as seen in the management of urethral strictures, Peyronie’s disease, male urinary incontinence and bladder substitution. His experience with kidney stone management is equally extensive. Meet Dr. Engel >>
About Our Practice
As a practice, we have been treating men and women in the Washington metropolitan area for the better part of 40 years. Started in 1963 by Drs. Seitzman and Shuman, our commitment to provide the best urologic care to our community has remained steadfast.
Each of our physicians is Board Certified and a graduate of a United States medical school and training program. They are very active within local hospitals, medical organizations, community organizations, and national medical groups.
Our pledge to our patients is as follows:
- We pledge to provide you with personalized, sensitive care. We will always keep you informed of your diagnosis, and you will play an active role in the decision-making process.
- We pledge to provide you with the latest advances in urology and to keep up-to-date with medical advances within our fields of interest.
- We pledge to respect your confidentiality as a patient.
- We pledge to provide you with the most cost-efficient healthcare. In an effort to curb costs we will recommend tests and procedures only when appropriate, and we encourage you to obtain second opinions if you so desire.
Above all, we pledge never to compromise on our first priority: the well-being of our patients.
