"Urology is a nice combination of surgery and patient relationships. I love seeing patients I’ve operated on year after year, building long-term relationships. You don’t often get that in other surgical specialties. Secondly, urology has always been at the forefront of adopting new technology. We use several different types of lasers, robotics and even sound waves. I’m always on the lookout for new technologies that may benefit my patients.
"I hope to reassure my patients, put them at ease and give them great results. It's a privilege to have a job that allows me to help people every day."
