I have and will always strive to give the best care I can. To be patient and honest to my patients, to treat them with respect and to carefully listen to them. To continue to learn new treatments and skills so that I will be able to provide state of the art care.
I have been in practice for over 3 decades. As far back as I can remember this is the only profession I have ever wanted to pursue. Helping people has always been my passion. It is this passion that prompted me to seek out new and innovative ways to bring better urologic health, procedures and treatments to my patients. When I learned how ultrasonography could be used to detect tumors in prostates I wasted no time in acquiring the equipment and training necessary to bring this important diagnostic tool to my patients. I also conducted several seminars to teach other physician how to use the technology. When I learned of the ground breaking technology of Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) for kidney stones I knew I had to get this technology for my patients as well. Putting together a small group of physicians we were the first mobile ESWL unit and not only was I able to offer this amazing treatment to my patients but made it available to other physicians and hospitals.
I have also established an ASC (Ambulatory Surgical Center) so we can offer our patients a one on one experience when having a surgical procedure. This was the first of its kind in Rhode Island and we were able to work with authorities to set the bar for this type of facility.
My passion for learning has not diminished over the years. I continue to seek out new and innovative treatments and procedures for our patients. My practice has grown to six physicians and five locations in Rhode Island. I am very proud to say that both my sons have joined me and have brought with them all the latest and greatest skills to offer our patients such as robotic procedures.
I have been on numerous board and committees throughout career and currently am the Chief of Urology at Roger Williams Medical Center and on the board of directors for the Salvatore Mancini Senior Center in North Providence.
I have been married to my beautiful wife of 43 years and have three wonderful children and seven beautiful grandchildren. I also enjoy woodworking, golf and a nice glass of wine with dinner.
