Emmett T. Boyle, Jr., MD, FACS: Board-Certified Urologist

Emmett T. Boyle, Jr., MD, FACS: Board-Certified Urologist - Toledo, OH “In medical school on my urology rotation, I felt closest to the urologists I met in terms of personality. They were accomplished and confident in their work yet completely approachable. I always knew I wanted to be a surgeon, so I loved the combination of endoscopic and open surgery that the field provided. We treat a wide range of disease from stone disease to cancer and care for a patient base ranging from pediatric to geriatric.

“I have truly enjoyed that urology pioneered the use of robotic surgery and we have been instrumental for such huge strides in patient care improvement. Robotic surgery has been the most exciting advance in my career and we were on the ground floor of forwarding this technology. I enjoy spending time with patients and would say that my understanding and empathy characterizes how I interact. I hope to give patients improvement of their urologic problem. I truly enjoy interacting with people and try to use humor whenever possible to make a difficult situation more relaxing and less intimidating for the patient.”

Gregor K. Emmert, Jr., MD, FACS: Board-Certified Urologist

Gregor K. Emmert, Jr., MD, FACS: Board-Certified Urologist - Toledo, OH “I was first exposed to urology at a very early age, because that was the practice of my father, Gregor Emmert, Sr., MD, who founded our office in 1968. I enjoy the opportunity to perform surgical procedures and see patients in the office. The diversity of problems we see, the changing science and technology, the interaction with patients and their families and the intrigue of surgery are all compelling. I enjoy the opportunity to better serve my patients. I strive to answer your urologic questions at each appointment and to make you feel comfortable. While my office hours are busy, I take the time I need with each patient individually. There are a number of things I want to give to my patients. Focused interest on their concerns, successful medical or surgical intervention for their problems, as needed, and information on innovations in urology are all important.”
