Dr. Rechtschaffen graduated from Columbia University with a B.A. in Biochemistry in 1991. He earned his medical degree at the New York University School of Medicine in 1995. He chose to enter the field of Urology primarily because of the flexibility it offers to treat both life threatening diseases such as cancer as well as quality of life diseases such as voiding dysfunction, sexual health and infertility.
He trained under Dr. Arnold Melman during his residency in Urology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, NY. After graduating the program in 2001, he returned to southern Westchester County, where he grew up, to practice Urology.
Dr. Rechtschaffen strives to be an excellent doctor to his patients and a resource to other physicians. He lectures local physicians and community groups about better ways to recognize and treat Urological issues.
He treats all aspects of urology, but focuses on prostate-related disease, kidney stones, infertility and is proud to have a large portion of his clinical time devoted to women's urology problems.
Dr. Rechtschaffen is an active member of the American Urological Association and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. This year he was selected to the AUA Leadership Program: one of only twenty Urologists nationwide.
Dr. Rechtschaffen is on staff at Montefiore Medical Center, St. John's Riverside Hospital, Lawrence Hospital Center, and White Plains Hospital Center.
He lives in Westchester County with his wife and three children.
