I believe in treating patients as I would my own family. I strive to communicate effectively with patients and family members at all levels. Through extensive discussions with my patients, I develop treatment plans that are both effective and acknowledge that quality of life issues are exceptionally important. I emphasize individually tailored treatments to help patients achieve success and limit treatment-related side effects which can affect quality of life. I am sensitive to the particular issues regarding surgical treatment of genitourinary cancer, especially the physical and emotional effects on patients and their family. By fostering a doctor-patient relationship based on mutual respect and open dialogue, I encourage patients to become empowered managers of their care.
