About Me

As a neuro-oncologist, I have expertise in treating cancers of the nervous system or cancers that have spread to the brain, as well as helping patients through the neurological side effects of cancer treatment such as neuropathy, cognitive changes and seizures.

I enjoy supporting patients and their families as they learn to cope with a serious illness. My goal is to help patients who are dealing with neurological disabilities due to cancer and to improve their quality of life. I also have a general neurology clinic where I see patients with a wide variety of neurological disorders.

In my spare time, I enjoy the outdoors, running and spending time with my family.

Conditions I Treat

- Brain cancer
- Spinal cord cancer
