WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a lung cancer specialist. I strongly believe that taking care of people with lung cancer with a multidisciplinary approach is key. When a patient comes in, they will see the lung cancer surgeon, the radiation oncologist, and a medical oncologist like myself – all in one visit. It is extremely efficient and convenient. I give all my patients a new patient notebook, which contains information about the disease, educational facts about treatment and side effects, and how important supportive care is for lung cancer. Supportive care involves pain control, fatigue management, diet, social connections, and how they are emotionally dealing with this diagnosis. I take a very holistic approach to taking care of people with lung cancer. Here at Duke, we offer state-of-the-art care, access to clinical trials and research, and the best doctors, staff, and facilities.
