About Dena Engel, MD

My aim is to provide the best urological care within the region while holding myself to the highest national medical standards. I make every effort to discuss concerns, answer all questions and allow my patients to be active participants in the medical decision-making process. My philosophy is in contrast with the old idea that "the doctor always knows best." I love developing relationships over time and will do everything possible to make sure patient visits at my practice exceed expectations and that I deliver the best possible outcomes. I am committed to providing professional, compassionate and individualized care to all of my patients as well as their families. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, running and relaxing at the beach. My husband, Scott, and I have four children.

Dr Engal was great. I mean who has a good time at his vasectomy? Me. She was very "efficient", I thought we hadn't started and we were half way done. Great bedside manner. Super easy and I've had no real pain or bleeding. Excellent job, Doctor.
