WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a urologic oncologist (surgeon) who specializes in treating kidney cancer and upper retroperitoneal tumors. There are three things that I love about my job: 1) Asking patients about their “story.” Sometimes the stories are about where they are from, sometimes they are about what road they took to get here, sometimes they are simply about what is on their mind. 2) Performing complex operations, because they require a mindset and skills that I possess. 3) Teaching residents and fellows different operations. I love seeing the excitement in the eyes of trainees. However, what I enjoy most is celebrating victories with my patients. I’ve been known to go fishing with patients when they are able to overcome their cancer and cherish items that have been given to me as “thank you” gifts. Outside of work, I enjoy playing golf and hiking with my children.
