WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I treat patients with different types of blood disorders and cancers. I have a special interest in treating patients with prostate, kidney, bladder and testicular cancers. My goal is to be attentive and devoted to my patients who are often dealing with complicated health problems. I try to personalize my care because every patient is different. I believe the future is promising because new treatments are being discovered every day for blood diseases and cancer. I am involved in clinical trials done through Duke University. Clinical trials are designed to provide patients with access to the newest possible treatments. I grew up in Cary and did all of my medical training in the Research Triangle Park area. I feel honored to practice in the same community I have lived in for more than twenty years.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

Although I see patients with all blood and cancer disorders, I am particularly interested in genitourinary (prostate, kidney, bladder, and testicular) cancers. In addition to being involved with clinical trials of new cancer drugs, I am interested in studying how lifestyle factors such as physical activity and exercise are important to improve cancer health. I am also investigating how we can use mobile health technology to improve cancer care.
