Arthur S. Centeno, M.D., is a board-certified urologist in private practice at Urology San Antonio in San Antonio, Texas. He treats prostate cancer patients through surgery, brachytherapy, and cryosurgery.
“I decided I wanted to be a doctor when I was twelve years old and while visiting my grandfather in the hospital and I realized I wanted to help people. My philosophy of medicine has evolved over the years. I have learned it is important that doctors be more than medical technologists—they must also be empathetic to patients and families. This became so clear to me when my wife died of breast cancer in 2001. I teach my medical students that we are dealing with people, not just diseases.”—Arthur S. Centento, M.D.
