Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

As a pediatric urologist, I try to give care to children that optimizes current knowledge of their medical problems and individualizes their management while considering their long-term health safety. These goals are part of my practice with children and my interests in advancing knowledge that will improve medical care. As a result of these interests, my studies focus on improving imaging by decreasing radiation and on better understanding of urologic conditions to minimize surgery.Read more
