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 specializing in surgical treatment of cancers of the genitourinary tract. I have extensive experience with laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgical techniques and apply these approaches routinely to reduce the pain, recovery time, and complications associated with traditional open surgery.
I am skilled in nerve-sparing and organ-reconstructive surgery essential for preserving normal functions when treating prostate, testis, bladder and kidney cancer. I am sensitive to the particular issues regarding the diagnosis of genitourinary cancer and its subsequent treatment, including its physical and emotional effects on the patient and their family and support system.
I recognize each person is unique and requires a treatment individually tailored to them to achieve successful cancer treatment, limited treatment-related side effects and maintained quality of life.
At 73, I’m totally invested in my health and vigilant about keeping up with my doctors’ visits. When I went to my primary care physician in 2020, he alerted me that my PSA level was up, an indication that I had a problem with my prostate. I know the normal range is from 1 to 4. Mine was 5.2. “We’ll take another PSA down the road,” the doctor said. We did another one, and that was 5.6.
Nineteen years ago, just after I turned 60, I was diagnosed with bladder cancer. I had noticed some blood in my urine, and the first doctor I talked to told me not to worry about it. Then over the next few months it got worse, and I decided to go to Fox Chase Cancer Center.
I’m 80 years old, and my wife and I live in Ambler, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia. I’m a retired information scientist, but I still work as a consultant and write a regular column about information science events.
I was diagnosed with bladder cancer about five years ago. I have lupus, but I see a rheumatologist regularly and have kept the condition under control with medicine for years. Therefore, when I started seeing blood in my urine, I knew something else was going on.
I wasn’t expecting the doctors to tell me I had cancer. It all started in December of 2020 when I had back surgery. Afterward, I started to feel a numbness in my legs. I’d go horseback riding and couldn’t tell if my feet were secure in the stirrups or dangling uselessly in the open air. Horseback riding is a big part of my life, so I had to figure out what was wrong.
