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.
