Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Harrison I specialize in treating people with genitourinary (GU) cancers such as bladder prostate testicular and kidney cancer. I dont treat other types of cancer across the breadth of tumors like some oncologists in the community may such as blood cancer breast cancer or lung cancer. My focus has allowed me to gain deep expertise in GU cancers and to stay abreast of the newest treatment advances clinical research and so on for those specific GU cancers. As a medical oncologist I meet patients at one of the scariest moments of their lives. I try to help educate them to make a decision about their disease and its process and what their treatment options may be so we can come to a shared decision about what might be the best option. The teaching aspect really strikes home for me. Both of my parents are teachers. The root word for doctor in Latin means to teach. So that is something Im both naturally called to do and enjoy doing.

Dr. Harrison is kind and compassionate. He is able to explain things in a direct way while still conveying hope and optimism.
in Midlothia, VA |
I recently saw Dr.Harrison and he did an outstanding job explaining and educating me about treatment options. Dr. Harrison took the time to answer my questions and was even excited himself about the treatment options available to me. I would recommend anyone with a GU cancer to Dr. Harrison.
in Garner, NC |
Dr. Harrison managed to reverse the improvement in my condition. Chemo received from Mayo Clinic completely eliminated the pain I had in my right hip. I took my last treatment under Dr. Harrison's supervision on August 10, 2016 and underwent scans on Sept. 7, 2016. Dr. Harrison gave me on scheduled shot (EGEVA) and prescribed Enoxaparin. Two days later the pain in my hip that had been gone for nine months was back and has remained.
