Dr. Dawson's Philosophy of Care

I have specialized in urologic cancers (prostate, kidney, bladder and testicular cancers) for more than 30 years, overseeing cutting-edge clinical trials that have resulted in the approval of many of today's current therapies and authoring guidelines for how to best manage these types of cancers. I view my relationship with my patients as a partnership and share my knowledge so they understand their cancer and treatment options and can share in decision-making. My expertise and caring personality combined have consistently resulted in a "5 Star" rating from my patients.
