Philosophy of Care:

I provide unparalleled quality of care. I begin by listening to my patients' stories, that way I can learn everything I need to know before consulting. Next, the patient and I arrive at a care plan together that addresses the patient's urologic needs. I emphasize evidence-based practice--advanced technology when helpful, and careful surgical technique when intervention is appropriate.
