Special practice interests

I chose to go into the medical field because I like the intellectual challenge of figuring things out and fixing them and I like working with people. Those two things seemed to meld well into a medical career.

I enjoy being a urologist because I am able to form relationships with my patients. When you see someone frequently and hear stories about their life, it allows you a window into what's going on with them and they allow you to be part of their family, in a way. It's those relationships that I enjoy most about what I do.

I can help with people of all ages with:

  • urinary incontinence
  • blood in the urine
  • kidney stones
  • different types of cancer
  • difficulty with urination - in men and women
