Summit Urology Group welcomes new provider
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (July 29, 2015) – Summit Urology Group is pleased to
announce that Dr. Ashish Behari has joined the practice.
A native of South Central Pennsylvania, Dr. Behari previously worked at Urology
Care Alliance in Philadelphia before coming to Franklin County. He graduated
from the combined 6-year medical program between Penn State University and
Jefferson Medical College.
Additionally, he completed his urology residency and a urologic oncology
fellowship at the National Cancer Institute of Health. He has also practiced in
Washington, D.C. where he instructed urologists in training at the MedStar
Georgetown University Hospital resident program.
Dr. Behari served as an urologic oncologist with a focus on robotic and minimally
invasive surgery for Kaiser Permanente as part of the Mid-Atlantic Permanente
“My interest in urology is mostly related to the impact of new cancer surgeries
and technology,” he said. “There is room to build cancer services here in Franklin
County and I’m looking forward to providing that service so patients don’t feel like
they have to travel far away to receive great care.”
Dr. Behari is board certified by the American Board of Urology and is a member
of the Society of Urology Oncology. He has completed more than 500 robotic
procedures during his career.
“Urology as a practice is always on the cutting edge of technology, especially
with robotics,” he said. “I’m excited to start expanding the scope of what’s being
done with robotics in Franklin County.”
Dr. Behari also offers testosterone replacement therapy for men who present
with low testosterone levels and other related issues, such as decreased energy,
depressed mood, and reduced libido. Patients can get injections, gels, and pellet
implants as treatment.
Outside of work, Dr. Behari enjoys spending time with his wife, kids and
extended family – his parents still live in Mechanicsburg – and exercising.
