WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a medical oncologist and have dedicated my career to treating breast cancer and assessing individuals and their families for inherited risk of developing cancer. I originally went into medicine because of my interest in its underlying science. While that aspect still fascinates me, I have over time increasingly valued the personal relationships with my patients and the reward of helping them through the challenges associated with a cancer diagnosis. A confluence of personal, family, and professional events led me to pursue treatment of breast cancer and made it impossible for me to do anything else. Breast cancer receives a great deal of attention because it should; it strikes at our humanity in a unique way. When not working, I spend as much time as I can with my wife and two children. We enjoy boating of all types, spending time at the coast, camping, golf, tennis and traveling.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research activities address how to understand the development of breast cancer and improve breast cancer treatment. I focus on the genetic aspects of breast cancer, including both inherited genetic factors and genetic changes in the cancer. These studies include investigating these factors for the detection and prevention of breast cancer, understanding what leads to cancer heterogeneity, and using that understanding to guide treatment.
