General Info

About me

I studied medicine to be able to serve people. I decided to specialize in Urology because it is a branch that combines clinical procedures, diagnostics, cancer management, and benign pathologies. Urology is specialty in which there is a high patient need and for this I am able to help a multitude of people with my expertise. What I enjoy the most about my work is interacting with people and having the ability to help my patient recover their health; I truly find it gratifying.
