My love of tinkering fueled my desire to become a doctor. I’m fascinated by the way things work – especially the most wonderful machine we have: the human body.
Becoming a physician was a natural choice and I chose urology as my surgical specialty because it involves analyzing and solving problems. I enjoy being able to share my skills and passion for healing with my patients.
I grew up in Florida and moved to New Jersey for residency training. I opened my urology practice in 2001. In medicine, staying ahead of the curve is very important. I maintain my faculty appointments as a clinical assistant professor at Rutgers RWJ Medical School and as an adjunct clinical professor at Fox Chase Cancer Center.
As busy as I am, I fi nd time for what’s important. Music relaxes me; I am a classically trained vocalist and love Indian music. I live in Marlboro with my wife and children, and it’s important for me to prioritize my family.
I exercise all the time because I’m dedicated to living a healthy lifestyle and want to set an example for my patients. Fitness-wise, I enjoy cardio, coaching my son in tennis and daughter in basketball. I play tennis regularly, as well. Being a father to two busy, athletic teens keeps me moving, that’s for sure.
The truth is, I am passionate about everything I do. If I’m coaching my daughter’s basketball team, she has my full attention. Playing tennis, I’m focused on playing my best. When I spend time with my patients, I am fully focused on creating a true partnership to help them manage their health. I want my patients to get get the best Dr. Gazi possible, each and every day.
