I am a medical oncologist specializing in genitourinary cancers and have more than three decades of experience focusing on prostate cancer and other urogenital cancers. Our multidisciplinary approach offers recently diagnosed patients a thorough assessment of their therapy options. Based on the unique aspects of your situation, we create a personalized treatment plan for your journey from cancer patient to cancer survivor. I was named to the Castle Connolly list of “America's Top Doctors” from 2008-2018 and rated in the top 10 percent of physicians in the nation for patient satisfaction in 2016 and 2017.

We provide expertise in prevention, diagnosis, active surveillance, and treatment of advanced disease. New research trials available for prostate cancer include hormonal agents, immunology, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and lifestyle/dietary changes.

At the James we’re very fortunate to have a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center on the same campus as a remarkable research facility. This is a place where the translation of basic science to clinical care is seamless and continually evolving.
