"At The Urology Clinic, we are honest and sincerely try to do our best to take care of our patients," Dr. Dutta says. "We welcome feedback and I encourage patients and peers to let us know how we are doing."
Dr. Dutta believes in his work and believes in the relationships he has established with the people he cares for. He says one of the most rewarding aspects of his practice is sharing in the lives of his patients.
"In addition to providing care, I enjoy hearing about what is important to my patients," he says. "Whether it has to do with their medical condition or with what is going on in their personal lives - I'm interested."
In his free time, Dr. Dutta enjoys running, golf, skiing and USC football.
