Iredell Health System, in partnership with the Iredell Physician Network, has announced the opening of a new practice, Iredell Urology.

Dr. Dominick J. Carbone Jr.

Dr. Dominick J. Carbone Jr. has joined the Iredell Physician Network as the leading physician at the new practice.

At Iredell Urology, Carbone will treat conditions such as kidney, bladder, and prostate cancer, benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), urinary incontinence, urinary tract infection (UTI), kidney stones, erectile dysfunction (ED), and prostatitis.

Carbone has over 27 years of experience in urologic practice in the northwestern part of North Carolina. He has 10 years of experience as a faculty member at Wake Forest University and 16 years of experience at Hugh Chatham Hospital.

Carbone’s patients can expect to be greeted by a physician with a compassionate ear and excellent technical skills. He attentively listens to his patients’ goals and works together with them to deliver optimal results in a minimally invasive fashion.

“My goal is to have a therapeutic alliance with my patients that optimizes their results and reinforces a beneficial doctor-patient relationship,” said Carbone.

Carbone earned his medical degree from the University of Michigan. He completed his residency at the University of Pennsylvania and his fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio.

He has formerly served as a faculty member at Wake Forest University Medical Center, chief of staff and chief of surgery at Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital, and as a member of Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital’s Board of Trustees.

In his free time, Carbone enjoys boating and playing the piano. He has three adult children, all of whom live in North Carolina.

His favorite healthy tip as a urologist is to encourage men to not be apprehensive about scheduling a urology appointment.

“We often serve as the entry point into the healthcare system for our male patients. We partner with our patients for both their urologic issues and their overall health,” said Carbone.

Iredell Urology is located at 542 Brookdale Drive in Statesville. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Carbone, please call 704-380-6940. Learn more at IredellUrology.com.
