Meet Stephen Lieberman, M.D.

I am a urologist. I’ve been retired from active practice since 2014. I currently do on-line consults for the M.A.V.E.N. project (, M.A.V.E.N stands for Medical Advice Volunteer Expert Network).

I’ve written 3 books: The first published in 2015 and updated in 2020 is Action Plan: Prostate Cancer, Choosing the right treatment for you. was published in-house by Kaiser Permanente and can be found at

The two books recently completed are A Curious Man’s Guide to Urology: Sex, Stones, Prostate Woes, and More! and A Curious Woman’s Guide to Urology: UTIs, Wet Pants, Stones, and More!

I hope that these books will be of value to any lay person seeking more information about a urologic ailment, whether it be something simple like a kidney cyst or something serious like a cancer of a urologic organ.  I also hope that a primary care clinician might find the books helpful in treating counseling their patients, whether or not they refer that patient to a urologist. Finally, the books may help any practicing urologist who doesn’t have nearly enough time to help patients make shared decisions.

This is a remarkably lucid, beautifully written discussion of all aspects of male urological medical and emotional topics. Anyone reading this book will be well-informed, empowered, and able to engage in a meaningful discussion with his urologist. Dr. Lieberman explains issues in a tremendously helpful, clear manner, with equal amounts of knowledge, sound advice, and charm.
