About

Bio

I have been practicing general urology on Long Island, NY for the past 17 years. I specialize in minimally invasive procedures for treating kidney stones and prostatic enlargement but am involved in treating patients for all urological issues. I pride myself in providing thorough and compassionate care.

Specialties
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.
