To ensure the accuracy of our patient satisfaction scores, we require that providers who see patients receive
a minimum number of completed patient-submitted surveys before their reviews are listed on their profiles.
Star ratings on this site are collected on a rolling basis from the previous 12 months.
Additionally, some of the physicians listed on our site do not see patients directly, and therefore, do not receive
evaluation and ratings from patients.
I am a urologic oncologist who specializes in the management of the prostate, kidney, bladder, adrenal gland, testis, and penile cancers. I have had extensive training in both open and minimally invasive/robotic techniques, and believe the best surgical approach is the one that maximizes patient safety and prompt post-operative recovery.
As a cancer specialist, I pride myself on being a patient educator foremost who strives to help patients and their families navigate their treatment options. I am passionate about creating partnerships with my patients, where care plans are individualized and balanced to optimize cancer control and quality of life.
As an academic surgeon, my goal is to provide my patients with the most updated treatment options, by being actively involved in clinical trials and translational research. I am fortunate to practice at Fox Chase Cancer Center, which fosters a culture of multidisciplinary care, innovation, and compassion, where treatment plans are discussed extensively to achieve the best possible outcome for the patient and their families.
