About

Bio

I have practicing urology for 15 years. I am currently practicing as a solo urologist in Fort Myers Urology. Practice name is Fort Myers Urology. I do have fellowship training in Urologic Oncology from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, NY. I do specialize in the office treatment of overactive bladder, urinary incontinence, prostate enlargement and low testosterone

Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
