Barbara Chubak, MD, is an Assistant Professor of Urology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. In addition to providing general urologic care, she specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of sexual dysfunction for all patients, regardless of sex, gender, orientation, or congenital condition. She is particularly committed to addressing the sexual health needs of women and other populations who have been historically marginalized and underserved, while also attending to the voiding dysfunctions and pain syndromes with which they are frequently comorbid.
Dr. Chubak received her medical degree from Johns Hopkins, while also earning a master’s degree in the history of medicine. Her residency training at Montefiore Medical Center-Albert Einstein College of Medicine was bracketed by fellowships in bioethics and sexual medicine at the Cleveland Clinic. Her clinical and research pursuits are informed by all of these disciplines, to ensure care that is culturally competent and respectful of differing perspectives without compromising reliance on scientific evidence.
In addition to this academic training, Dr. Chubak is certified in prosthetic surgery by the Sexual Medicine Society of North America and in vulvoscopy by the International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health. As a member of these and other professional organizations, she is active in medical education and peer-review both in the United States and abroad, and has been recognized by the American Urological Association for excellence in research.
Currently, Dr. Chubak’s research is focused on cross-cultural comparisons in care for sexual dysfunction, and on expanding patient-centered outcomes to include intimate partners. She is also concerned by the scarcity of scientific evidence available to support some of the most popular and expensive energy, stem-cell, and cytokine-based therapies currently in use for treatment of female sexual dysfunction. As a clinician, she is dedicated to provide safe, effective, and patient-empowering medical and surgical care.
