Additional Information
For patients diagnosed with urologic cancers, there are a wide range of treatment options available, and unfortunately this can be confusing to patients. My goal is to clearly explain all treatment options, and to work together with each individual patient to determine the treatment course that is best for them. It is important to consider not just the cancer, but also each patient's preferences and goals prior to settling on a treatment plan.
