About Me

I am a board-certified hematologist-oncologist. I have been drawn to cancer patients and their families since I volunteered with a home hospice organization and the American Cancer Society during my 20s. I was also a camp counselor for siblings of children who had or were being treated for cancer. I witnessed the impact that a cancer diagnosis has on the patient and their loved ones. I want to put my expertise to good use in this field. Similarly, I am fascinated by the intelligence of the human body and the function of each blood cell. I enjoy caring for patients with benign hematologic conditions as much as those with cancer or precancerous states. I have been privileged to work with a diverse, multicultural patient population from all areas of North Carolina and the world. I aim to provide empathetic, thorough care for all my patients. I was born in New York, raised in New Mexico, and my education and life experiences have taken me to many other places like Washington, D.C., Chicago, and New Jersey. Each has shaped me to be a better physician and person. In my free time, I enjoy spending as much time as possible with family and friends, reading, being out in nature, and being fed more than cooking.

Ratings and Reviews

The Patient Rating score is an average of all responses to care provider related questions on our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Learn more about our survey process. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score. Patients who see some types of providers receive a different version of the patient satisfaction survey. Those results are not available on DukeHealth.org.
