Men’s health issues:
 “Men hear these things from their GPs all the time: watch your cholesterol and blood pressure, pay attention to your diet. Don’t smoke. These things are all true. My patients come to us because they are having specific problems—cancers and other disorders of the prostate, kidneys, bladder—my job is to address those issues so that they can get on with their lives.”

Why Hampton Roads?
 “My wife, Lisa Casanova, M.D., was transferred to Langley in 1991 to complete her service with the Air Force as a staff physician. Neither of us knew much about the area before we moved here, but we both found good practices and partners we enjoyed working with. And it’s a great place to raise a family. So here we are, all these years later.”
