"I take the fight against cancer personally. I lost my father to esophageal cancer. I understand the disruption cancer causes in a family. Attempting to understand the disease, treatment options, and make life changing decisions can seem overwhelming. I strive to help each patient and family gain knowledge of their disease and treatment options so they are well prepared to make the best decisions possible. I have focused my time and efforts to develop an expertise in Urological Cancers. I remain active in patient care, research, and national committees for these tumors to ensure that I provide superior patient advice."

About Urological Cancers

Urologic Cancers, also referred to as Genitourinary (GU) Cancers include cancers of the Prostate, Bladder, Kidney, & Testicles. Although cancers of the Prostate and Testicles affect only men, cancers of the Bladder and Kidneys affect both men and women. These cancers are optimally treated by teams of cancer specialists including Urologic Oncologists, Urologists, and Radiation Oncologists. Using the latest research and technical advances are vital to maintaining optimal quality of life while at the same time obtaining the best possible outcome!
