    “Dr. Carlyle is a great addition to the urology team, joining Dr. Wael Muakkassa and Dr. Bashar Omarbasha in providing treatment of diseases of the urinary tract in men and women,” said Giselle Wisdom, Rome Medical Practice administrator. “With three providers, patients in Rome will have even more options for appointment times for their convenience.”
    Dr. Carlyle completed his urology residency at the Ohio State University, Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio. He earned his medical degree at the University at Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences; his undergraduate degree with bachelor of science in mechanical engineering at the United States Military Academy at West Point. He is a member of the American Urological Association.
    “I became interested in urology because there is a lot of variety in this field of medicine,” Dr. Carlyle said. “Beside the differences in treating men and women, as an urologist I treat a variety of disorders.”
    Dr. Carlyle’s training includes surgical and medical management of erectile dysfunction, urinary incontinence, benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate/BPH), complex kidney stone disease, kidney cancer, prostate cancer, and bladder cancer. He is trained in robotic, laparoscopic, endoscopic and traditional open surgical techniques.
    As with Dr. Muakkassa and Dr. Omarbasha, Dr. Carlyle will be performing in-office procedures, including cystoscopy and vasectomies. The specialists are members of Rome Memorial Hospital’s medical staff, performing surgical procedures at the hospital and providing 24-hour coverage in the Emergency Department.
    It is important to Dr. Carlyle to establish a relationship with his patients where they feel comfortable confiding in him and trust him to provide the compassionate care they need.
    “My priority is to make my patients feel respected and make sure they understand the treatment they are receiving,” Dr. Carlyle said. “I want to establish the kind of relationship with my patients where they feel they can talk to me about anything. People are often hesitant to talk about urological problems because they are embarrassed, but I want my patients to feel confident in my sensitivity to their privacy so that I can provide the care they need to feel better.”
    Prior to his medical career, Dr. Carlyle served as an Army Captain and intelligence officer and was an Army Ranger. He was deployed in Afghanistan and in Iraq between 2004 and 2007 and is the recipient of two bronze stars, an army commendation medal, three army achievement medals, a global war on terrorism service medal, and Parachutist Badge among others.
    Dr. Carlyle and his wife, Dr. Lauren Carlyle, a pediatrician, are the parents of five children, one set of twins and one set of triplets.
    All three urologists are accepting new patients. To schedule an appointment, please call Rome Medical Practice at 315.356.7390.
