Clinical Interest for Patients
I see patients only at the Shaw Cancer Center in Vail (Edwards, CO 970-569-7429). I specialize in prostate cancer issues from screening to initial treatment to caring for patients with metastatic disease. I serve on several advisory boards for new medications used in GU cancers.

Care Philosophy
Patients facing cancer need expertise and experience as well as compassion. Finding options for further therapy is always a priority. However, supporting a patient who has exhausted all options is a sacred trust. I try to do both.

Personal Interests
My hobbies include golf, skiing, fly-fishing, and woodworking. Grandparenting is an increasingly lovely diversion as well!

Volunteer Activities
Board, Meyn Foundation Volunteer, EPIC Experience

Public Speaking
I speak about prostate cancer, from screening to latest research findings

Information for Referring Providers

Clinical Interests for Referring Providers
I have been very involved in Prostate Cancer both as a physician and researcher. In this role, I provide counseling for newly diagnosed patients who are contemplating therapy options, as well as taking care of patients with advanced disease. As there are many unanswered questions, we try to have clinical research protocols available for all stages of prostate cancer.

Research Interest for Referring Providers
Prostate cancer - novel hormonal therapy, immunotherapy and chemotherapeutic approaches. I also work with colleagues on natural products for prevention of cancer such as silibin.
