Throughout its history, Marshall has sought to expand medical services to the residents of the Western Slope. In the last year, another specialty, Urology, has been incorporated into Marshall’s offerings, and is now staffed with two excellent physicians and a team of caring support staff in Cameron Park. Urology is a clinical specialty that diagnoses and treats disorders and disease of the urinary and reproductive areas of the body.

John Montorello, MD and Jason Nelles, MD comprise the new Marshall Urology team, and both bring a broad range of experience, education and clinical interest areas that make them a good fit for the community. They are both trained in contemporary urological treatment approaches and bring a fresh perspective to their specialty. They treat the full range of urological conditions, from routine urinary issues to prostate and bladder cancer.

Dr. Montorello comes to Marshall with many years of military service, having been in the U.S. Army and Air Force. He was a flight surgeon, has combat trauma urological treatment experience, and recently retired as the Chief of Urology at Travis Air Force Base after 23 years. He received his medical degree from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md.

In his approach with patients, Dr. Montorello is a calm and reassuring presence during what can be complex clinical diagnoses, with everything from prostate and bladder cancer to difficult urinary-related problems. “I really try to treat each patient like I would want my own family treated,” he said. “I want them to leave the appointment not feeling rushed, and having all the information they need to further understand their condition. I often say that people spend more time researching a new car or TV than they do their own health, so I try to engage in a conversation will help aid their understanding and make them comfortable.”

Dr. Nelles is a very recent addition to the team and completed his residency at Chicago’s University of Illinois medical center. He treated many patients and describes his approach as thorough and making sure each patient understands what is happening and what their situation is. “Our practice does include cancer diagnoses — those are the times you really need to be compassionate, supportive and be a good listener as well as a good teacher and explainer, so your patient knows everything there is to know about what is happening.”

In addition to unrushed, friendly care in the clinic, both physicians also perform surgery for various conditions, and Dr. Nelles will be certified to do surgeries using the da Vinci robot-assisted platform for some conditions. It is often the preferred method for prostate removal, and he will be offering this in the future when needed for a patient’s condition.

Marshall Urology is a referral-based office, so if you have a urological concern, discuss it with your primary physician. Dr. Nelles and Dr. Montorello are both accepting new patients.

Coming up on Saturday, Oct. 17, the physicians will host a free prostate screening opportunity at the Divide Wellness Center in Georgetown.

Marshall Urology is located at 3501 Palmer Drive, Suite 201 in Cameron Park. For more information, call 530-672-7040.
