“My favorite thing about specializing in male infertility is improving the quality of life of my patients and watching them become parents. I aim to have an open dialogue with my patients and the community to reduce the stigma surrounding male infertility, empower people with facts, and help them achieve their dream of building a family.”

My Journey in Medicine
I decided to pursue urology and male infertility to significantly improve my patients’ lives and help people build their families. It’s such an honor to be a part of that process! I love seeing the baby pictures that I get from my patients, which constantly drives me to be the best doctor I can be.
I’m passionate about supporting people with fertility problems through education and personalized care. In my daily practice, I love helping my patients navigate common misconceptions surrounding fertility and answering their health questions. I have clinical expertise in fertility preservation, hypogonadism, vasectomies, and microsurgical vasectomy reversals.
Ever since completing my training in urology and male infertility, I have been a urologist at UT Southwestern, where I also teach courses to medical students and conduct cutting-edge research to advance knowledge in the field.
Infertility is a condition that can be difficult for patients to bring up with their doctors and for clinicians themselves to address. With compassionate care, I walk my patients through their options and help them create a strategy so they can achieve their goals of building a family. I also enjoy using my voice to educate the community and reduce taboos on the topic of male fertility.
At Flo, I review content related to sperm health and male fertility to help our many users who are trying to conceive. Through evidence-based content, I hope to make a positive impact on their lives and support them so they can have a successful pregnancy.
