  • Why do some providers have no ratings?
    At UTMB, a provider's ratings are only posted when she/he has a minimum of 30 completed surveys within the past twelve months. New-to-UTMB providers or individuals in less common areas of practice may be temporarily under this threshold. We set this baseline to ensure we offer the most accurate reflection of each Individual.

    Why No Ratings?

    A urogynecology provider is a subspecialist of obstetrics/gynecology that has received special training to diagnose and treat women with pelvic floor disorders. They treat various types of incontinence, severe constipation and prolapse of the bladder or uterus. They do not, however, treat any cancer. Nor do they treat kidney stones or deformed kidneys.

    In general the fields of obstetrics/gynecology and urology are quite different; however, in some specialized areas, the two fields share similarities and have a great deal of overlapping services. These specialists focus on pelvic organ prolapse, urinary and fecal incontinence.
