"Simply stated, it's about the people - patients, colleagues, nurses, and office staff. Urology allows me to interact with people of varying backgrounds and learn from them. At the same time, I get an unbelievable opportunity to work with the latest technological advances in medicine and use them to help my patients."

He completed his internship and residency at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and has been practicing in Oregon since 2002.
