“As a Radiation Oncologist, it is a privilege to provide medical care for my patients; care that is based on the most current clinical evidence and latest technology. It is my goal to establish a relationship of confidence and trust with my patients and their families, so that I may educate them with all of the available treatment options, and guide them in making the best decisions for themselves. I believe in treating the whole patient, not just the disease for I have found that  in doing so, the human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it.”

“My approach to patient care involves treating the whole person. I find it important to address not only your medical needs, but your emotional and psychological ones as well. In addition to focusing on treatment of the disease, I think it is equally crucial to urge my patients to lead a healthy life, and I am committed to  help individuals  learn about the different aspects of wellness. While I treat all types of cancer and hematologic conditions, I have a particular interest and training in breast cancer.”
