Peter N. Bretan, MD, is dedicated to serving the urological needs of Watsonville, California, and the surrounding communities. Experience has taught him to treat each patient as an individual and a partner in his or her medical care and he makes patient education a central component of his care. Dr. Bretan treats a broad range of urologic concerns; among their specialties are renal surgery, renal transplantation, and treatment of female incontinence.
Our staff is committed to individualized patient care and thorough diagnoses. We strive to provide state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment using the latest urological innovations. We are aware that many urological conditions are accompanied by social discomfort or embarrassment; therefore, we emphasize sensitivity and discretion when dealing with all our patients’ concerns. We are associated with University of California at San Francisco where our physicians teach and do research.
A urologist is a special physician who is highly trained to treat disorders of the male and female urinary tract (bladder, ureter, kidney, and urethra) and the male reproductive system. Urology is classified as a surgical subspecialty, but since a wide variety of clinical problems are encountered when treating urological conditions, knowledge of internal medicine, pediatrics, gynecology, and other specialties is required.
