Dr. Harrison's Care Philosophy
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.
