Summary

I believe in providing comprehensive care for common urologic conditions. I am particularly interested in medical therapy and minimally invasive surgical treatment for benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) and kidney stones. My interests also include trying to identify reasons kidney stones form in the first place and developing individualized strategies to prevent them from recurring. I strive to treat all patients with integrity and respect and create personalized strategies for how to best address medical ailments.
