Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

As a colorectal surgeon a large portion of my practice deals with rectal cancers but I also take care of benign diseases such as anorectal problems Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. My patients are often dealing with scary and uncomfortable things so its important for me to give each one as much time as they need to express all of their concerns and to make them feel comfortable. Whats great about Duke is that we take care of the whole patient. I have all the tools at my disposal to handle a patients care and there are other specialists available to help when needed. We also have patient navigators who coordinate visits to make sure that everything can happen on the same day.Read more
