Welcome to my Web page! I hope you can learn a little bit more about my practice and myself, and how we can partner together to make a difference in your health.
I was born and raised near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but went to college across the state at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. During my medical training at Duke University in North Carolina, I met my wife who was from San Diego. After completing my training in urologic surgery at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, we decided to return to sunny San Diego to settle down.
The scope of my practice encompasses all aspects of urology, including cancer of the urogenital tract, benign urologic disease, and both open and minimally-invasive approaches to urologic surgery. While I take pride in my technical expertise as a surgeon, the most rewarding part of my job is helping you understand your health better. I believe strongly in prioritizing communication and education when it comes to your care.
I try to maintain a balanced diet and exercise regularly. I love to cook for my family with the freshest ingredients California has to offer, and I like to stay active by playing tennis and enjoying the outdoors with my family.
