My care philosophy

I believe that by working in such a wonderful environment at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, we can provide the most current therapy as well be involved in research to improve outcomes for patients with testicular cancer. My clinical philosophy for patient care is to first listen to the patient's concerns and needs. Then, I assess the patient's condition and previous testing and labs in order to explain my evaluation and offer my recommendations. I believe it is important to make sure the patient and family understand their condition as well as possible to enable us all to make the plan of care together, as a team. I am available to discuss your situation with you or your physician, so please feel free to contact me anytime at the e-mail address below. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.
