Close

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.

Treatment Philosophy

I take time to listen to my patients, understand what they are saying, which helps me come up with a treatment plan that is best for them. My practice is unique in that it is focused on benign urological conditions. Many of these conditions have multiple treatment options, and sometimes do not require treatment at all. Therefore, my time for each patient when I see them is dedicated to counseling them on all available options for their diagnosis.

I believe humility is an important attribute that I bring to my practice that helps strengthen my ability to relate to patients and ultimately, help them achieve their goals. One of my favorite things about Urology is that it is constantly changing with newer technologies to treat urological conditions. I am dedicated to making sure patients have the best treatment options available to them.

My goal for every patient is that when they leave my office, they feel that they received the best care possible. I want patients to know that every clinical decision I make is in their best interest.
