About Me

When I was exposed to the complexity of the field of urology and the personalized nature of treatments, I thought it could be the right medical specialty for me. When I learned that urologists could have a tremendously positive emotional impact on patients’ lives, I knew it was the right specialty.

Now, I’m devoted to improving people’s quality of life through my treatments. I treat men experiencing a broad range of fertility and sexual health problems, including erectile dysfunction, prostate disease, and infertility issues.

Men may be uncomfortable or anxious when discussing such problems, and I respect that these issues can be sensitive. I remind them that whatever the condition, it’s likely I have encountered it before, and that it is treatable—all that’s left to do is figure out what treatment is best.

Choosing the best treatment depends on many factors, because urological conditions manifest themselves differently in every person. Therefore, I focus on each individual patient, rather than just the condition. Two people with the same condition may require different treatments.

In addition to treating men for urological conditions, I see couples for infertility problems. I feel a deep responsibility toward people that come to me for these conditions, and I do whatever I can to get them the answers they need. I know how important it is for people to have children. My own children are the most important blessing to me.

When I’m not treating patients, I conduct research in collaboration with the cardiology department, looking at the safety of testosterone replacement in regards to heart health. Fifty percent of the population is affected by testosterone deficiencies, and I am fortunate to work at a medical center that is at the forefront of this research.
