Biography

I was drawn to the field of oncology because it allows me to treat the whole person. The number of new and effective cancer therapies we can offer patients excites me, and it is incredibly rewarding to experience positive results with patients and families.

My practice style is patient- and family-focused. I work closely with a multidisciplinary team to determine the best, evidence-based treatment option for each individual. My primary focus is in the treatment of cancers originating from the lung and/or head and neck region. I am a native Rochesterian and am proud to have attended the University of Rochester for medical school.

Conditions I Treat:

- Head and neck cancers
- Lung cancer
- Other malignancies
