About Columbus Urology

Columbus Urology's mission is to provide the finest urological care available and strive for the best outcomes for our patients. Our team consists of 2 physicians and a nurse practitioner which form a comprehensive group that can meet all our patients' urological needs. Patients often come to us with sensitive  or life threatening conditions. As urologists, we understand the stress that can accompany these issues and provide medical and surgical care to manage all urological problems in men, women and children. Our group's purpose is to provide the most advanced urological care so we can improve the lives of our patients.


The  Columbus Urology Group was founded in 1968 by Dr. William Gates Jr. After 2 years of solo practice, Dr. Robert Howland joined Dr. Gates. As our practice continued to grow, we were excited to bring to our staff Wesley Barrett, nurse practitioner. Since that time Columbus Urology has been the Golden Triangle region's premier group caring for patients with urological problems.


We pride ourselves in the fact that we are sensitive to our patient's needs and it is important to us that our patients experience a comfortable atmosphere. Our goal is to provide the most exceptional care in a friendly environment.


In 2013, Columbus Urology welcomed 2 new physicians, Dr. Joshua G. Griffin and Dr. Benjamin W. Woodson. We are very fortunate that both are fellowship trained in and have advanced specialty training in oncology. Both Dr. Griffin and Dr. Woodson use state of the art robot assisted technology.
