"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."
