Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

I believe in providing the latest in technical advances, such as THINStrand Prostate Seed Implant Brachytherapy and ERB Prostate Immobilization during IG-IMRT, without losing sight of the individual patient's desires. Shared decision making allows us to create a plan together that optimizes the chance for cure and reduces the risk of side effects to the lowest level possible. It is critical no one is rushed into a decision, thus I typically spend 60-90 minutes at the initial consultation.Read more
