About Me

 

I consider it a privilege to be able to take care of my patients, and I look forward to participating in your urologic care. I hail originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, where I lived until moving to Southern California for medical school.

 

My wife and I have two children, who keep us both busy.  With my free time I like to try new restaurants, watch and participate in various sports, and spend as much time as possible with my wife and kids.

About My Practice

 

I evaluate and treat most urologic conditions, and have a special interest in minimally invasive techniques such as the use of the daVinci Robot in surgical procedures. I see patients of all ages, and treat both men and women.
