Philosophy:

Ask urologist Dr. Scott Martz what brought him from Chicago’s renowned Cook County Hospital to Tyler, and he’ll tell you it was our East Texas quality of life: the close-knit, family friendly community, the weather and, most important, the people. “The people are great. That’s what sold us on Tyler.”
Quality of life matters to Dr. Martz. After all, it’s why he chose to specialize in urology: “You can really make a strong impact on the patient’s quality of life.”
Dr. Martz brings with him a big-city breadth of experience: “My training has provided me with the opportunity to care for a diverse patient population. This has allowed me to gain invaluable experience treating a variety of urologic diseases. I feel I am able to provide a high level of care, not just for routine health issues but for some of the more complex disease processes.”
He also brings a deep appreciation for the importance of close communication with his patients’ primary care physicians: “They’re at the front line. I think communication is key.”
