WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I’m a radiation oncologist that specializes in gastrointestinal malignancies. My approach to patient care is to spend a lot of time getting to know patients first. Then, I carefully evaluate all their tests and work with other colleagues to develop an individual plan. Using a team approach, we are either able to cure patients through combined modality treatments or help ease their symptoms.

MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I’m involved in clinical trials that address practical issues for patients. In one, we’re looking at novel agents combined with standard radiation therapy and chemotherapy in an effort to improve patients’ outcomes and quality of life. In another, we’re developing treatments that are shorter than the standard five to six weeks of therapy. And, we're examining new imaging modalities to better define tumors both anatomically and functionally to help guide us on the usefulness of treatments during therapy.
