Patient Care Settings

Cancer, Pediatrics


In this era of increasingly complex health care, I believe hematology and oncology patients benefit from a multidisciplinary, evidence-based approach, which addresses all factors affecting their health.

I chose the field of pediatric hematology/oncology because I want to help ill children, as well as their families, through the difficult process of cancer and blood disorder diagnosis and treatment. I am fascinated by blood cells and how subcellular and vascular alterations can affect the entire body. It was natural for me to combine these interests to treat hematologic pediatric cancers and sickle cell disease.

Conditions I Treat:

- Pediatric cancers
- Sickle cell disease
- Vascular anomalies

Professional Background

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.
