I active­ly lis­ten and treat my patients with com­pas­sion and respect to build a trust­ing and last­ing rela­tion­ship. I view the patient-physi­cian rela­tion­ship as a part­ner­ship; my goal is to pro­vide high qual­i­ty and effi­cient care in a com­pas­sion­ate way by edu­cat­ing and involv­ing my patients in the deci­sion mak­ing process. I treat all my patients as if they are my fam­i­ly; giv­ing them the same time, ded­i­ca­tion and commitment.

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.
