WHAT IS A "GOOD MAN?"

A “good man” is someone I would entrust with the care of a loved one. It’s a culmination of traits, whether that’s an ability to communicate, one’s own personal intelligence, or their bedside manner.

MOST ADMIRABLE QUALITY IN MEN:

Humility. We are all very prideful individuals, but we have to recognize our own limitations and inexperience at times.

PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT:

Since moving back to Northwest Arkansas, we have started the region’s first multidisciplinary Genitourinary Tumor Conference at Highlands Oncology. Collaborations like these are the key to the future of oncology.

SURPRISING FACT:

I was previously a triathlete who competed internationally for Team USA. I trained and raced with individuals who have since been Olympic gold medalists.

FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB:

The evolution of the field. Every week, new guidelines and new technology are pushed out that can completely change the dynamics of how you follow, treat or manage a diagnosis. This requires a lifelong commitment to education to constantly ensure the best for your patients.
