Urologist3821 Ed Drive Raleigh NC, 27612
I am a board-certified reproductive urologist in private practice who has over 25 years of experience and has served on the University of North Carolina School of Medicine faculty where I was a Clinical Professor of Surgery/Urology and assistant chief of the urology division. I am committed to providing the highest caliber care for all of my patients. I have built a reputation for practicing evidence-based medicine with integrity. I have a long history of working locally and nationally with reproductive endocrinologists, gynecologists, urologists and primary care providers to provide couples comprehensive, state-of-the-art Male Factor Infertility diagnosis and treatment. I use the most innovative and effective procedures and surgical techniques. In fact, there are a number of practice areas like microsurgical vasectomy reversals, microsurgical varicocele repair, reconstructive surgery for obstructive azoospermia, surgical sperm harvesting and no-scalpel vasectomies, with which I have more experience than most urologists in North Carolina and the southeastern United states. I also provide comprehensive general urologic care for men and women of all ages.
I received my MD degree from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, followed by a residency in urology at the University of South Florida Hospitals in Tampa. I went on to complete a nationally recognized postdoctoral fellowship in Male Reproductive Medicine and Surgery at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. I have served as President of the Durham-Orange County Medical Society and the Carolina Urological Association, and am a charter member of The Society for the Study of Male Reproduction with the American Urological Association. I attend the Annual Meetings of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and the American Urological Association.
I enjoy putting people at ease and I am sensitive to my patient’s psychological well-being. My approach to patient care is to respect your time and past experiences and to put your welfare first at all times. In doing so, I act as a patient advocate and demand quality care, respect your dignity and minimize system complexities. Furthermore, I am committed to reviewing all of your options, not just the ones that I can provide. In recognition of my work, I have repeatedly been voted one of America’s Top Doctors®, The Best Doctor’s in America®, and Business North Carolina’s Premier Practitioners.
I grew up in a small steel town outside of Pittsburgh, PA. I wanted to be a doctor since middle school and was drawn to urology through my experiences with Mt. Sinai Hospital urologists. My Croatian heritage drove me to becoming a “foodie” along with my three children. I enjoy music, traveling, and trying to stay fit.

Concerned about prostate?
Your symptoms are nonspecific and are not likely related to your rising PSA. Sometimes sexual activity before having PSA blood test drawn can falsely elevate them. If you were my patient I would have you under surveillance which means I would see you and check your PSA every three months until we’re both comfortable otherwise if it keeps going up, you need to have a prostate MRI. Stay close to your local urologist. READ MORE
