Dr. Daniel Kwon is an oncologist who cares for patients with cancers of the genital and urinary organs, including prostate, kidney, bladder and testicular cancers. He provides care in both the clinic and the hospital.

One focus of Kwon's research is improving the process by which providers and patients share decision-making. He is particularly interested in enhancing understanding and decision-making for patients by implementing proven tools – such as audio recordings of consultations that they can listen to later. His research also focuses on improving cancer survivorship.

Kwon earned his medical degree from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. He completed a residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in hematology and oncology at UCSF.

    Dr. Kwon is an outstanding compassionate and professional doctor. Always well-prepared for our visits listens thoughtfully and gives us direct and considerate answers. He is helping transition my care to a different state across the country - I am so glad he is helping with this because in addition to my cancer and rehab I have so much to do in preparing for our cross-country move it is reassuring to know that Dr. Kwon is working on a smooth transition of my oncology care. I would recommend him to anyone battling cancer.

    Dr. Kwon was fantastic. Assessed our knowledge of the disease at the beginning of our visit then had an organized discussion going step-by-step through diagnosis and treatment options with risks and benefits. Compassionate and took his time with the difficult discussion of prognosis with a clear statement that my cancer is not curable but is likely controllable for the next few years. Devoted time to discuss my values and goals for my remaining years of life. Clear communicator thoughtful and prepared -- our whole family feels that I am in good caring hands with Dr. Kwon.

    Dr. Kwon was the third of three UCSF doctors I had consultations with and to a one they have all been excellent! Dr. Cooperberg (urology) and Dr. Mohamad (radiation oncology) were the first two I met with.
