About Me

I am a surgical oncologist and researcher who specializes in treating patients with endocrine tumors. Specifically, I see patients who have thyroid cancers, parathyroid disease, adrenal tumors and melanoma. I enjoy taking care of patients with cancers because the amount of trust and faith that they place in their doctors is special. Treating cancers allows you to develop a powerful relationship with a patient and their loved ones in a very short period of time, which is also unique. My favorite part of being a surgeon is seeing a patient with a problem and successfully seeing them through the surgical process. I believe in guiding each patient to their long-term goal based on their specific needs. When I am at home, I enjoy spending time with my family and being active outdoors by running, hiking, or gardening.
