Wilmot Cancer Center601 Elmwood AveRochester, NY 14642Faculty AppointmentsAssociate Professor - Department of Medicine , Hematology/Oncology (SMD) Patient Care SettingsCancer, Hospital MedicineBiographyI chose oncology because of its richness and the ability to impact people's lives in a positive way. The field is unmatched in terms of the interpersonal relationships that are developed, medical complexity and research opportunities. My philosophy is that optimal patient care stems from both a thorough understanding of the disease process, as well as intimate knowledge of the patient as a human being. I continually work to deepen my relationships with patients in order to improve outcomes. I am a regular person who is as comfortable coaching my kids' sports teams as I am with a stethoscope around my neck. I love spending time with my family, which includes my wife Ticia and children Caleb, Ava and Megan. My area of expertise includes myeloid leukemias.
