Best of Forsyth 2015-2018

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 lives in Alpharetta with his wife and English Retriever, Weller. He is a self-described sports fanatic, enjoys traveling, reading, and working out.

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).

Everything happened when it was supposed to. The people and facilities were top notch. I traveled from Middle Tennessee to have the Aquablation on the recommendation of my urologist in Nashville. He said it would have the best recovery time of the procedures available to me. It's been 8 days and I feel I'm well on the road to full recovery. I was looking for excuses not to go even while on the way to Georgia but the prep op with the surgeon gave me peace and comfort with the decision.

I went to Dr. Kriteman for reoccurring UTIs. He listened and was very caring to my situation. Dr. Kriteman and his staff were also very professional. I never thought I needed a urologist, but I’m so glad I found him to help me.

I am a relatively new patient of Dr. Kriteman. I have been at Georgia Urology for many years and when Dr. Banks retired Dr. Kriteman became my new doctor. He also did my prostate and bladder surgery in March of 2020. I am more impressed with each time I see him. He spends the time needed with me explaining what is happening and answering any questions I might have.
