Often, I am the third, fourth or more consultation -- and patients still have questions and a lack of understanding, which demonstrate communication problems that I hope to correct. In addition to radiation oncology, I have expertise in palliative care and pain management.
I have always been interested in treating cancer patients. I started out as a radiation therapy technologist and advanced my career by going to medical school. I grew up in Western New York and returned here after living in
North Carolina and studying medicine in New York City. I reside in Spencerport with my wife and two children. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, golf, art and fine dining.
I am also on the medical staff at Wyoming County Community Hospital, United Memorial Medical Center and Medina Memorial Hospital, and see inpatients as needed.
Conditions I Treat:
- Head and neck cancers
- Lung cancer
- Breast cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Thyroid Cancer and Benign Thyroid disease treatment with radioactive iodine
- All adult cancers
Working in cancer care since the late seventies he trained as a radiation therapist at Upstate Health Science Center in Syracuse.
