Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

Cancer is a confusing, complicated and often life-changing diagnosis. I try to personalize patient care in order to lessen our patients' fears and anxieties, focus on the positive aspects of treatment and encourage them to live fully during and after their treatment. I have experience using intensity modulated radiation therapy, image guided radiation therapy, stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiotherapy to treat many different cancers. I am committed to integrating sophisticated technology into successful treatment for cancer patients. I strongly value the multidisciplinary approach to patient care and seek to enroll patients on clinical trials whenever feasible. Furthermore, our participation in clinical trials has required our practice to maintain high standards in order to comply with the latest protocol, thus providing the highest quality of care.Read more
