assignmentAccepting New Patients


Cancer is one of the most challenging medical problems, especially head and neck and lung cancers. I am very well trained, well read and highly experienced. I am also a compassionate and caring physician.

I provide my patients with comprehensive medical care including personalized, curative intent treatment. Since my patients deserve only the best, they can be confident knowing they will receive excellent medical care from me. My areas of expertise include stereotactic body radiation therapy and brachytherapy for lung cancers, as well as treating nasopharyngeal, oropharyngeal, oral cavity, laryngeal and hypopharyngeal cancers.

Conditions I Treat:

- Lung cancer
- Head and neck cancers
