Biography

I chose this specialty because of the many exciting new therapeutic options for patients with genitourinary cancers, as well as the opportunity to become an integral part of a team that cares for patients during one of their most difficult times.

As my patient, you can depend on me for compassion and dedication, in addition to an innovative and patient-centered approach to care. My research interests are clinical trials for genitourinary cancers and cancer survivorship research. During my free time, I enjoy running, hiking, cooking and travel.

- Prostate cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Testicular cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Adrenal cancer
