Overview

A diagnosis of cancer rightfully carries much anxiety and feelings of helplessness, but my philosophy is that there is always hope!

As a Radiation Oncologist, I listen to the needs of my patients, use my medical knowledge, and collaborate with my team of doctors, nurses, social workers, psychologists to create a plan that is tailored to my patient’s goals. Much anxiety is derived from feelings of helplessness, and that is why I believe that it is important that the patient be in control every step of the way.
