Philosophy

State-of-the-art medical care
Medical advances that could significantly impact your treatment are evolving continually in the areas of male infertility and male sexual dysfunction. Because of my highly specialized training and because I focus on these areas exclusively, you will receive absolute state-of-the-art medical care.
Being an active partner in your medical treatment

I strongly believe that you need to have a complete understanding of the medical options available to you. Similarly, I need to be fully aware of your unique personal situation and priorities. Together, we will decide on the course of treatment that makes the most medical.
