Chronic Prostatitis

Chronic Prostatitis

Prostatitis is one of the most common urological complaints that bring young and middle-aged men to the urologist.  Prostatitis can be acute or chronic, bacterial and non-bacterial.  The non-bacterial chronic prostatitis also called Non-Bacterial Prostatitis/Chronic Pelvic Pain syndrome is the most common type of prostatitis. It causes significant discomfort, pelvic pain, urinary symptoms and negatively affects the quality of life.  Treatment of CP/CPPS is challenging.

Care at NY Urology Specialists
by on Jul 06, 2019

I am a 54 year-old male who is extremely happy with my care at New York Urology Specialists. I came to see Dr. Alex out of near desperation after consulting with three other urologists. Literally over one night, I began experiencing severe penile pain and burning. None of the other urologists were able to help diagnose what my problem was and seemingly didn't take my problem very seriously. In fact, one of them specifically told me at it had nothing to do with my prostate. After 6 weeks of suffering, I saw Dr. Alex. He examined me and gave me some tests and lab work. He very quickly ascertained that my problem was due to an enlarged prostate. He proscribed medicine to deal with my pain in the short-term and keep my prostate size in check over the long-term. My problem quickly disappeared. Today, 5 years later, I feel great. Dr, Alex listens to you as a patient, takes your opinion and health concerns seriously and knows his field inside-and-out so that you can get proper treatment for your problem. I can't thank him enough for diagnosing and solving my malady - you sometimes can't appreciate a problem until you have it. Getting rid of it and getting back to normal is so important - I am so glad that I saw Dr. Alex for my problem.
