Patient Care Bio
With expertise in nuclear medicine, I believe that treating patients – not just the disease – is of utmost importance.
I chose this field because I enjoy the mix of medicine, physics, mathematics and computers in nuclear medicine. My patients can be comfortable knowing I am always available and try my hardest to maintain a very relaxed environment for patients and their families.
Conditions I Treat
- Thyroid cancer
