I am dedicated to ensuring patients understand their disease process and the risks versus benefits of available treatments. In cancer care today, there are often more than one reasonable option for how to proceed, it is important to know a patient's history, values, and priorities in order to guide the best course of treatment for that individual. It is also important to have a doctor that you can trust to be available and listen to questions and concerns during each phase of treatment and recovery. I believe that good communication is at the core of good care, both between patients and their caregivers with myself, as well as between myself and your primary physician and other treating specialists. Whether you have been newly diagnosed with cancer or a blood problem, you are seeking a second opinion, or you are less than satisfied with your current care, I would like to help, call for an appointment.

The patient comes first. I will spend the time needed to answer questions and assist in the tough decisions. Controlling symptoms like pain and nausea in order to improve quality of life during the course of cancer treatment is a priority. This makes aggressive therapy when cure is the goal more possible, and functional support when we can only offer to try and control the disease for a while a central issue at visits with the physician.
