Dr. Kriteman grew up outside of Boston, Massachusetts and attended Yale University graduating with a major in English Literature. He then worked on Wall Street as an investment banker for PaineWebber in their Healthcare and Biotechnology department before heading to medical school. He graduated as a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Society from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. He moved to Atlanta to complete his general surgery and urology residencies at Emory University.

Dr. Kriteman practices general urology with a particular interest in male and female voiding dysfunction, and treatment of enlarged prostate (BPH) utilizing minimally invasive procedures such as Urolift and Rezūm. He is also a Center of Excellence (COE) for the Urolift procedure and an instructor of this for other urologists.

He specializes in all procedures of the prostate including Greenlight laser photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP) and the newest procedure called Aquablation. He was the first urologist in Georgia to perform this newest procedure and acts as an instructor for this as well. He has specialized in Greenlight laser of the prostate since 2001 and has traveled extensively around the country and the world lecturing and teaching this procedure. He has presented numerous papers at both national and international meetings and is a member of the American Urological Association and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

Dr. Kriteman has conducted numerous national webinars on the Aquablation and Greenlight procedures for enlarged prostate/benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), reviewing several of his prior cases and results. Most notably, Dr. Kriteman recently hosted a free community health talk on Axonics Therapy — a clinically proven, advanced treatment option to reduce symptoms of overactive bladder, bowel incontinence, and urinary retention.

In addition, Dr. Kriteman is among only a select number of physicians in the country to receive the GreenLight Center of Excellence designation. He is the first in the Southeast and the first in Georgia to achieve this designation which recognizes a high degree of experience with GreenLight Laser Therapy and commitment to delivering effective, long-lasting therapy to men suffering from benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH).

Dr. Kriteman is exceptionally professional and just as importantly, exceptionally friendly. I see him routinely, once a year, and he always treats me as if I were one of his best friends who he hasn't seen for a long time. His medical advice is quite helpful and much appreciated. I would recommend him to anyone.

After doing my research to find a urologist, I chose Dr. Kriteman, and was able to get an appointment in a very reasonable short time. I was very pleased after my first visit with Dr. Kruteman. He was very caring, understood my issue and laid out a diagnostic plan that seemed sensible and timely. After a second visit when a diagnostic test was done, I must say the entire staff through two visits treated me with a very caring and professional attitude. I look forward to continuing care by Dr. Kriteman.

I was referred to Dr. Kriteman by a friend. I am a male senior citizen who experiences urinary issues that are common with age. Additionally, I am concerned about possible prostate cancer. In my initial meeting with Dr. Kriteman, I very clearly stated that I have multiple night/time trips to the bathroom, plus I am concerned about possible cancer. I succinctly asked what he offered as the “least invasive” prostate exam, or should I be satisfied with an annual digital exam and an annual PSA test. He smiled, gave me a flier on a [uro-cuff] procedure, and scheduled me for an upcoming appointment. The noninvasive procedure was quick, painless, interesting, educational and successful. After a few days of time for Dr. Kriteman to read the results, we met again. I was diagnosed with BPH. He prescribed some meds, and I no longer have leaking issues when I am breathing hard. Plus, I sleep all night with absolutely no overnight bathroom trips. He also confirmed that I now have an additional test to PSA and digital tests, indicating I am not a prostate cancer patient. I have recommended Dr. Kriteman to as many of my peer friends as possible. Based on his knowledge, his “bedside” manner, his skill at explaining medical issues to patients, I can’t speak highly enough of Dr. Kriteman. Thank you for the opportunity.
