WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a medical oncologist who generally sees patients with breast, lung, colon and blood cancers. I consider my style to be fairly easy-going. I suggest only the most medically necessary tests and studies with the goal of getting to the right diagnosis and treatment. I’ve found that this approach also reduces patient anxiety. I greatly enjoy getting to know my patients and individuals. Even though two patients’ cancers may have the same name, I pride myself on basing the treatment of each patient on what may be right for that specific person. I decided to focus on oncology because you have to know about many organ systems, not just one organ or organ system, to be successful. My favorite part of practicing medicine is helping patients get through their treatment and obtaining the best results for them.
