Experience

I look forward to meeting you and taking an active role in your urologic health care.

My practice offers diagnosis and treatment of the various medical and surgical disorders of the urinary and male reproductive tract conditions. In these cases, I act as a consultant, and keep in close contact with the referring physician.

My goal is to return patients back to their primary physician for further health care. I also see patients who self refer. When this occurs, I will follow the patient through the diagnostic and treatment phase, and then recommend a primary care physician for more general health needs.

My approach is to work with you, not "for you" or "on you". You should expect a frank and thorough discussion regarding your diagnosis and treatment options. After all, you're one half of the doctor-patient partnership.

I am committed to treating each patient as an individual, working with them to tailor the best course of treatment. The office functions as an educational resource to the community by providing written, video and audio information. I believe that patients should have the opportunity to learn all they can about their treatment.

The forms of treatment for urinary problems are as varied as the causes. The key to success is to look at each individual and evaluate his or her unique situation. In some cases, office procedures such as cystoscopy or urodynamics can be helpful in evaluating problems. Sometimes problems are successfully addressed with behavioral or dietary changes. Other situations may require medication and/or surgery.

There is a growing movement in surgery to be minimally invasive; to make smaller holes, not big incisions.

I agree with this philosophy and have devoted a significant portion of my training and recertification to this aspect of surgical practice.

An urologist treats medical and surgical disorders of the urinary tract, prostate and male reproductive tract. Urology, as much as or perhaps even more than any other discipline consists of disease processes that produce signs and symptoms that, if accurately and properly elicited, will go far towards helping the knowledgeable physician make an accurate diagnosis. A urologic physical exam is performed. After this, diagnostic studies such as urine and blood tests or x-rays, can be utilized in the most economical manner possible to establish a diagnosis.

Dr. Godet's practice offers diagnosis and treatment of the following conditions:

- Prostate diseases

- Kidney stones

- Erectile/sexual dysfunction

Alaska is where Dr. Godet met his wife and they have two precious kids.

His hobbies outside of family and the rigors of medicine include golf, enology, and the intermittent pursuit of 'Scruggs style' banjo playing.
