Dr. Attila Barabas is Board Certified in
Urology, and joined the medical staff in 2010. He attended medical school at the
University of Utah School of Medicine and completed a residency in Urology at the
University of Utah Health Science Center.
Dr. Barabas took courses in biology and physiology while he was an undergraduate, and those subjects ‘spoke to him’ and sparked his interest in medicine. His mentors in medical school were urologists, and Dr. Barabas says that they were the happiest people he knew. According to Dr. Barabas, the specialty of urology provides a great mix of a clinical practice and a surgical practice, and he enjoys following his patients through their care.
Since he began practicing he’s seen the relationship between the physician and patient become much less paternal. The physician makes recommendations and counsels patients on the risks and benefits of treatments and therapies. Patients, for the most part, are taking a more active role in decisions about their healthcare. It’s much more cooperative.
Dr. Barabas and his wife Shannon have four active boys, one in college and three in school. High school sports and outdoor activities like skiing, camping and water sports keep the family busy all year around.
Thank you Dr. Barabas, for providing our patients with excellent care.
