WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am an adult neurologist with further specialization in neuro-oncology. I treat adult patients with central nervous system (CNS) tumors of the brain and spine. My focus is combining compassionate patient-centered care with cutting-edge research. I want my patients to not only live longer, but also live better. I encourage my patients to be open and honest with me about their symptoms so I can find ways to help them feel better while undergoing treatment. What I love most about my job is seeing the courage and strength exhibited by my patients and their families.

I am also interested in how supportive care measures effect survival and quality-of-life in brain tumor patients.
