Patient Care Settings

Cancer, Radiation Oncology


Cancer is one of the most challenging medical problems, especially head and neck and lung cancers. I am very well trained, well read and highly experienced. I am also a compassionate and caring physician.

I provide my patients with comprehensive medical care including personalized, curative intent treatment. Since my patients deserve only the best, they can be confident knowing they will receive excellent medical care from me. My areas of expertise include stereotactic body radiation therapy and brachytherapy for lung cancers, as well as treating nasopharyngeal, oropharyngeal, oral cavity, laryngeal and hypopharyngeal cancers.

Conditions I Treat:

- Lung cancer
- Head and neck cancers

Clinical Trials

Three- Versus Five-Fraction Regimens of Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy for Peripheral Early- Stage Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer: A Prospective Randomized Phase II Study

Lead Researcher: Deepinder Pal Singh

This study's goal is to find out if the kind of side effects people experience from radiation is different depending on the schedule of their radiation treatment. Patients will be randomly assigned to either the 3 Fraction or 5 Fraction schedule of radiation. After patients complete radiation treatment, they will follow up with their radiation oncologist.

At URMC, we believe that patients should be empowered to make the right decisions regarding their personal healthcare. To do so, transparency is critical. URMC partners with Press Ganey, to survey our patients about all aspects of their care experience. We are now putting this pertinent information at your fingertips by displaying star ratings for our providers along with anonymous patient comments on our website. This will help you make better-informed choices about how and with whom you seek care. Click here to learn more about the surveys used to generate this vital information.
