Urinary incontinence can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. It presents a hygienic issue as well as a social problem. Imagine being out with friends at dinner and having an awkward accident occur. This scenario does occur with women of all ages but there is help for this condition.

Dr. Nancy Lobby has worked with patients for years who were struggling with urinary incontinence and overactive bladder. She has a vast amount of experience in this area. As a woman herself, and a professional urologist, she understands the physical and emotional aspects of this disorder.

Her office staff is comprised mostly of women and Dr. Lobby has purposely done this in order to provide a safe haven for women who might be embarrassed about this condition. Patients can feel comfortable in speaking openly to the doctor, nurse or other staff.

Urinary incontinence is not considered a disease, and has no precise etiology. Most cases have several different contributing factors and Dr. Lobby will require a family and medical history, as well as a physical exam and urinalysis. Additional tests may also be performed so that the true underlying causes of your condition can be accurately determined.
