Patient Care Setting



There are general principles of cancer care that have withstood the test of time. However, scientific and technologic advances are being made rapidly. As an oncologist, I always remember that a patient is at the end of every stethoscope, robot, sequencing machine and so on.

I chose this field because it is most interdisciplinary and dynamic – plus, I work with a team of outstanding colleagues. I have a special interest in what was once called tumor immunology, now referred to as immuno-oncology.

Conditions I Treat

- Melanoma
- Prostate cancer
- Urinary cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Testicular cancer
- Penile cancer
- Rare cancers such as Merkel cell carcinoma and Kaposi's sarcoma

At URMC, we believe that patients should be empowered to make the right decisions regarding their personal healthcare. To do so, transparency is critical. URMC partners with Press Ganey, to survey our patients about all aspects of their care experience. We are now putting this pertinent information at your fingertips by displaying star ratings for our providers along with anonymous patient comments on our website. This will help you make better-informed choices about how and with whom you seek care. Click here to learn more about the surveys used to generate this vital information.
