    Philosophy of Care

    I believe it is important to provide patients with education and resources to make informed and intelligent decisions. I connect with my patients through active listening and understand that religious, cultural and philosophic values are integral components in making health care decisions. I work closely with my patients to determine the best treatment options -- conservative, alternative or surgical. By keeping up-to-date with new advances and discoveries in the fields of medicine and urology, I provide my patients with the best urologic care possible.
