Additional Information

I was initially drawn to the field of medicine because of my strong sense of empathy and desire to help others. However, it was the doctor-patient relationship that I came to know in medical oncology and hematology that solidified my career choice. These relationships are essential to the effective treatment of cancer. In addition, the ever-changing science of hematology and oncology provides a constant intellectual challenge and requires the practitioner to stay focused on the latest advances in treatment and care.

I have had many role models in medicine over the years. Those that I most respect approach their patients with compassion and respect. Having had personal experiences with cancer in my own family, I have come to appreciate those qualities in a physician.

I strive to be a physician who respects the wishes of his patients, while working hard to control their disease. I am always focused on maintaining a practice that is able to provide access to the best treatment options that medical science has to offer and provide the best patient care possible. Throughout my professional career I have worked to restore patients’ health and improve quality of life through a holistic philosophy, while embracing the values of compassion, equality, and excellence. I have learned from many patients that treating cancer goes well beyond prescribing medications. Sometimes, the best medicine can be a smile, a handshake, a humorous anecdote or just knowing that their doctor listens and cares.
