Dr. Doerr will be available for appointments beginning Monday, June 9 in suite #3 of the Medical Office Building attached to the hospital at 849 Routes 5 & 20 in Irving.

“We’re excited to be partnering with Dr. Doerr and WNY Urology to offer urology services right on our campus,” said Scott Butler, divisional director of business development. “Not only does it satisfy an important health need for our community, but it is also another indication of the positive direction that TLC Health Network is heading in for continuing to provide high-quality care for our community for years to come.”

Dr. Doerr, an Orchard Park native, has strong ties to the Western New York area and strives to provide the best possible compassionate care to his patients. He said, “making access to care easier for patients in this region was at the center of the decision to bring services to the Lake Shore campus.” He also stated that the community can expect a patient-centered approach to care where their interest comes first. “We want patients to be comfortable, so we try to take time with them, educate them, and reassure them.” Dr. Doerr also noted that his office staff provides excellent support for patients and are “truly available, very receptive.” This includes a nurse that is on-call 24/7 for anyone with issues that need to be addressed.

Dr. Doerr completed his urology training at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. During his five years at the Mayo Clinic, he was afforded the opportunity to learn from the current leaders in the field of urology. His training included comprehensive surgical and medical management of kidney stones, urologic oncology, female urology/incontinence, and pediatric urology. During his urology residency at the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Doerr was recognized for his leadership abilities by being appointed Chief Urology resident during his final year.

Dr. Doerr graduated with honors from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and he was elected into the Alpha Omega Alpha honor medical society in 2005.
