About Dr. Perez
Dr. Ramon Perez is one of the most respected urologists in the country. With nearly 40 years of clinical, surgical, and research experience, he has pioneered many state-of-the-art medications and procedures to treat urological conditions in men and women. In addition to his vast knowledge of urological issues and treatments, Dr. Perez is a friendly and compassionate physician who cares deeply about his patients.
As a college student studying engineering in Puerto Rico, Dr. Perez decided to pursue his longtime interest in medicine, in what he describes as “the best decision of my life.” After medical school, he moved north to Rochester, New York, to finish his surgical training, and was offered a residency in urology at the University of Toronto, where he graduated in 1980. He says, “I thought the urology residency would be a temporary job, but it was so interesting to me that I decided to stick with it. Urology turned out to be my life’s passion.”
Dr. Perez stayed in Canada for more than 10 years, doing groundbreaking research at Queens University. He published widely on topics including pediatric urology, infertility, interstitial cystitis, and renovascular disease. In 1992, Dr. Perez decided he’d “had enough of shoveling snow,” and moved to Florida to create a new research department at the Urology Health Center in New Port Richey. He began researching treatments for prostate cancer, including some that have now become common in the field, such as radioactive seed implantation of the prostate and hormonal treatments for this condition.
In 2009, Dr. Perez merged his practice with Urology Specialists of West Florida to continue to bring new and innovative therapies to his patients.
Urology is my life’s work; I love being at the forefront of developing new medications and procedures to improve my patients' lives.
Dr. Perez loves living in the Tampa Bay area with his wife Patricia. He gets to be close to his children and his grandchildren, and he is just a short flight away from his family in Puerto Rico. He is very interested in writing, and tries to write whenever he isn’t taking his grandkids to the beach.
