About Me

Growing up in the Midwest, I chose a career in medicine simply because I like to help people. In school, I did well in math and science, they were my strong suits and medicine was the natural route for me. While attending medical school, my grandfather was afflicted with prostate cancer, his experience had a profound effect on me and my decision to be a urologist.

I like caring for my patients and seeing them improve knowing that I made a difference; whether I determine a patient doesn’t have cancer or I can improve their life, this is very rewarding to me.

When I meet a patient for the first time, I make this visit very personal and ensure my patient has time to explain what their problem/issue is. I then create a medical plan and involve my patient; this way they have some connection to their own health.

I treat many of my patients for years and create great long-term relationships by focusing on their health but also what they enjoy doing, their hobbies, their job. It’s great to know my patients personally.

The field of urology is constantly changing; I strive to stay on top of current treatment strategies, as well as stay on the forefront of the latest robotics and surgery technology.

Looking back over the past 20 years I’ve worked to be on that latest scientific edge of urology. Due to this I’ve been able to have good outcomes, rapid recovery and am an early adopter of good protocol that demonstrates promise for my patients.
