Joseph C. Presti, Jr., M.D.

Background

I was born and raised in San Francisco and have been fortunate to have spent most of my life in the Bay Area. While at UC Berkeley I refined my interest in the sciences which lead me to choose medicine as my career. I chose Urology as a specialty because it was the perfect balance between surgical and medical fields and it let me interact with patients of all ages with a variety of conditions.

I subspecialized in the field of Urologic Oncology (surgical management of cancers of the prostate, bladder, kidney, testis) because of the challenges it presents and the opportunity it provides to positively impact the lives of many people. The diagnosis of cancer can be a devastating and challenging event in someone’s life. I try to provide outstanding and compassionate care to all of my patients and help them and their loved ones through this endeavor.

After completing my training in Urologic Oncology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, I joined the faculty at UCSF from 1992-2000. I then moved to Stanford University in 2000 where I was the Director of Urologic Oncology for 12 years. I joined the Kaiser Permanete Department of Urology in 2012.

Kaiser Permanente allows me to practice in a patient-centered environment that I believe is critical to the healing process. I am surrounded by a group of outstanding physicians, nurses, medical assistants, and administrative staff that share a common goal of delivering outstanding, personalized care to our patients.
