In honor of National Doctor’s Day, celebrated each year on March 30th, Chesapeake Urology says “Thank You” to our team of dedicated and passionate doctors. Doctor’s Day reminds us of the exceptional contributions our physicians make to the field of urology and the constant dedication they have to serving those who come to them in need of superior care. And, while today is one day dedicated to doctors, Chesapeake Urology is grateful for the amazing work of our talented physicians every day of the year.
To help celebrate this special day, following are some interesting facts about the wonderful physicians that comprise our world-class urology practice and deliver superior care to every patient.
