About Me

As a radiation oncologist, vice chair of UR Medicine's Department of Radiation Oncology, and Director of Wilmot Cancer Institute's Judy DiMarzo Cancer Survivorship Program, my professional life is guided by, in my own words: "For the survivor of cancer, the world is full and each day is a celebration; For the physician, each patient is an inspiration; For the person with cancer, each day is precious and must be faced with courage."

I am fortunate to spend my life striving to help patients with cancer, optimizing their quality of life and curing them when possible. My patients, especially young children, have taught me to appreciate my own life ... to not take it for granted. It is our responsibility and goal to devise strategies to maximize the curability or palliation of cancer, while minimizing the adverse effects of treatment.

My areas of expertise and special interest include protocol design for patients with lymphomas, sarcomas and childhood cancers, as well as cancer survivorship including the long-term effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy on normal body tissues and the generation of secondary malignancies.

Conditions I Treat

- Lymphomas
- Sarcomas
- Pediatric hematology and oncology (including central nervous system cancer)
- Long term side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy
