WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

My focus is on treating genitourinary cancers, including prostate, kidney, bladder, and testicular cancers. I practice medicine from the basis of what we know, but I also do it from the standpoint of what is important to patients and their families. When there isn’t a clear-cut decision on the treatment route, I try to get a sense for what their priorities are and tailor the treatment to meet their goals. I also get input from the other doctors who are involved in the patient's care so that we can make the best possible decision for each patient. The advantage of coming to Duke is that you get expertise in many different areas, including oncology, surgery, and radiation oncology. If you have a problem in another area, we have experts in all other fields – so we can take care of you no matter what happens or what comes up.
