I work hard to deliver the best possible care to every patient. I want to make sure patients feel my great compassion for what they and their loved ones are going through. I always keep a patient's personal goals of care at the forefront of all medical decision-making.
My favorite moments are always when patients receive the news that their cancer was completely resected — removed in surgery — and their surveillance tests are negative for recurrence.
Witnessing the joy in their faces during these moments is priceless. It makes all of our hard work worth it.

I am a physician who sees patients at UW Medical Center – Montlake.
My main research focus is on prostate cancer, including screening, early detection and management of localized prostate cancer, with a special focus on germline genetics. New and exciting treatment paradigms are likely to emerge from our research efforts here, and it’s an honor to be a part of efforts to improve patient outcomes.
