DMA adds New Urology Specialist, Service for Area Patients
Dickson Medical Associates is proud to welcome Dr. Frank Lohrasbi as its new urology specialist. Lohrasbi comes to DMA from Urology Associates based in Nashville.
Located at 127 Crestview Park Drive in Suite 207, Lohrasbi is providing urological care for men and women with both cancerous and benign conditions. He has been seeing patients in the Dickson-area since the first of November.
“Dickson is a very rapidly growing community and I think it’s about time to establish a urological center of excellence here,” said Lohrasbi. “At DMA Urology, we can provide urological cancer surgery and reconstructive surgery right here in Dickson. It is my hope patients will have the assurance knowing they don’t have to travel as far as Nashville to have their needs met. I am very excited to bring this specialized care locally.”
Lohrasbi has over 20 years of professional experience in the field of urology. He holds degrees from Vanderbilt and the University of Tennessee. He has been a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons since 2002. Lohrasbi chose urology as his specialty due to the combination of patient interaction in clinic as well as surgery performed in the operating room that the field provides.
“The approach to my practice is and has always been to consider the complete patient,” said Lohrasbi. “When a patient comes to see me, not only are they having some physical aliment that needs to be treated, but they also come with fears and concerns. I try to not only treat my patients physically, but also emotionally, with reassurance, in order provide them confidence. It is my goal to establish a good relationship between myself, the patient and their family members.”
Lohrasbi believes the best way to successfully engage with new patients starts with listening and trying to understand every aspect of a patient’s condition.
“I think when a patient tells their whole story and realizes a practitioner truly wants to find out everything about them, they realize that physician genuinely cares and wants to help them out,” Lohrasbi said.
In addition to providing minimally invasive surgical procedures for his patients, Lohrasbi is a pioneer in utilizing robotic technology in surgery. He was the first surgeon to perform a procedure with robotics in the state of Tennessee. He has been a nationally-recognized instructor of robotic surgery since 2004 teaching hundreds of surgeons from across the country in robotic surgery techniques.
Outside of medicine, Lohrasbi enjoys quality time with his family. He is also an avid reader and likes to read about a variety of subjects.
Dr. Frank Lohrasbi is available to see patients Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm. Appointments can be made by phone at 615-441-4548.
