Dear Urology Patients,

The Division of Urology with Hartford Healthcare Medical Group would like to extend our most sincere apologies to our patients who have been experiencing difficulty reaching our office the past few weeks.

With the help of our patients we have since identified the issue with our newly installed phone system and have made the necessary corrections. We encourage all of our patients to please continue to contact us at 860-947-8500 and thank you again for your understanding during this transition.

Thank you for your patience.
