I believe in CAR­ING for my patients. 

Com­pas­sion­ate care — Active par­tic­i­pa­tion of the patient — Respect — Infor­ma­tion to edu­cate and empow­er the patient — Nav­i­gate an action plan — Goals, achiev­ing your health­care goals.

Sep­tem­ber is prostate can­cer aware­ness month. Since prostate can­cer is the sec­ond most com­mon form of can­cer in men, start­ing at age 45 for those at an increased risk and age 50 for those at an aver­age risk, screen­ing options are avail­able to help catch can­cer at an ear­ly stage. Take charge of your health and sched­ule with your pri­ma­ry care provider to dis­cuss fam­i­ly his­to­ry and risk fac­tors to deter­mine if screen­ing is right for you.
