“It’s been a happy reunion and I’m looking forward to seeing patients in the Highland community again,” said Dr. Parres. “Highland is a great community. St. Joseph’s has always been a wonderful hospital to work with as well as the referring doctors in this area. I’m looking forward to re-establishing those relationships and also providing patients with complete care for all urologic conditions closer to home.”

USL also recently opened a new office in O’Fallon, Illinois within HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital which will include a staff of five doctors and a nurse practitioner. As part of USL’s larger network of providers, patients at either location will have access to treatments for a wide range of urological conditions including prostate cancer, pelvic organ prolapse, incontinence, sexual health, benign prostatic hyperplasia, kidney stones, kidney cancer and erectile dysfunction.
