My clinical practice focuses heavily on Urologic cancers. Taking care of and helping those who are sometimes in their most difficult journeys, is very rewarding. I was born and raised in south Louisiana. I am a third generation physician, who was fortunate enough to witness my father and grandfathers care for their patients with empathy and respect. Watching my younger brother battle cancer has been the most impactful life experience as it relates to my personal interactions with my own patients. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and children. Outdoor activities, cooking, and watching sports are my favorite past-times.

Clinical Focus:
Bladder Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Adrenal Cancer, Kidney Cancer, Penile Cancer, Testicular Cancer, General Urology, Minimally Invasive Surgery, Urologic Oncology, DaVinci Surgery, Robotic Surgery, Transperineal Prostate Biopsy, SpaceOAR
