Our History

Chesapeake Urology Associates (CUA) was formed in September 2006 when, after two years of discussion, the 14 physicians of the original CUA merged with 15 physicians from Maryland Urology Associates (MUA) and seven physicians from another respected urologic group. 

The merger was conceived and completed by Dr. Sanford Siegel, President of CUA.  Dr. Siegel and the leaders of the two other groups, Dr. Thomas Smyth and Dr. Brad Lerner, shared a vision of expanded services and better control over the group's practice in the current healthcare environment. The merger not only increased the size and breadth of the group, but also improved and extended services for patients and permitted the development of stronger relationships with hospitals and insurance companies.
