Steven Baughman, MD

Philosophy of Care

As a surgeon in the United States Air Force for 21 years, along with an additional eight years as a surgeon in the civilian sector, the most impactful lessons I have learned are those of perpetual learning, trust and shared decision making. I owe it to myself and my patients to stay committed to ongoing education so that I can continue to be at the leading-edge of contemporary urologic care.The trust a patient places in their surgeon to navigate their care is one that is truly remarkable. I do not take this responsibility lightly, providing the absolute best care that I can give.The evolution of my career has proven that there is nothing more important than shared decision making. I view my patients as the one directing their care, with my navigational guidance and joint decision making. I have learned that this partnership allows my patients to be well-informed, gain a better understanding of their care and outcomes, and are overall much happier with their medical experience.

    After being in the clinic for 45 minutes, the care provider spent only minutes with me. Failed to answer my question about a post-op concern.
