Porterville Recorder

Urology patients in Porterville and the Central Valley have seen a huge improvement in the level of care with the partnership between Sierra View Medical Center and the USC Institute of Urology in establishing the Center of Excellence in Urology here. In its first full month of operation (November), the clinic located in the Cobble Stone medical complex at Villa Street and Putnam Avenue, saw 320 patients. “This arrangement is working very well,” said Dr. Virinder Bhardwaj, a local urology physician who is now an associate professor with Keck Medicine of USC.
