About Me

I am a geriatric oncologist and specialize in treatment of cancer in older adults as well as breast cancer. I am actively involved in research, focusing on improving outcomes for treating older patients with cancer. I understand that every person is unique and requires a different approach to care. I try my best to take the time to understand what each patient and his or her family needs – and then I strive to meet these needs. I am very passionate about what I do!

Conditions I Treat

- Cancers in older adults
- Breast cancer
