Patients Seen: Adolescents and Adults

Hav­ing been a Urol­o­gist for 20 years, I find that my rela­tion­ship with my patients is cen­tral to their opti­mal care. I take time to get to know them and their care team’ includ­ing their extend­ed fam­i­ly. I get to know their expec­ta­tions, life philoso­phies and help them real­ize that every deci­sion we make regard­ing their care is a shared deci­sion. My patients are aware of the stan­dard of care guide­lines to man­age their con­di­tions, but I always coun­sel my patients on all the avail­able options and allow them to make a tai­lored deci­sion for themselves.

Clinical Interests

As a board cer­ti­fied urol­o­gist, my train­ing at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Chica­go Hos­pi­tals has pro­vid­ed me exten­sive train­ing in all aspects of Uro­log­ic care. I uti­lize the most cur­rent tech­niques to treat my patients and am espe­cial­ly inter­est­ed in the Davin­ci Robot­ic plat­form which i have used since 2006. The part­ners in my prac­tice have per­formed well over 1,500 robot­ic cas­es over this peri­od of time which includes surgery for the prostate, blad­der, ureter and kidney.

Personal Interests

Aside from spend­ing time with my love­ly fam­i­ly and friends, I am inter­est­ed in trav­el, cre­at­ing art, home improve­ment projects, ten­nis and watch­ing my kids play sports!

"The doc is friendly and engages, but the patient has to manage the conversation or one will spend a lot of time on sidebar conversations. Glad he's not in a rush. As pleasant as he is, wish I didn't have to remind him to give me orders for suggested tests or to issue prescription renewals."
