Patient Care Bio
While in training, I found great fulfillment in caring for patients with cancer, seeing their strength and resolve and trying to match this in my determination to give them the best possible treatment.
I was particularly attracted to radiation oncology due to my background in physics and the multitude of options radiation provides to treat patients with cancer. I have special interests in brachytherapy (low-dose and high-dose rates), as well as the protection of normal tissue during radiation therapy.
Since I believe all patients have unique stories to tell, my goal is to understand their individual stories – and then to discuss and tailor their radiation and cancer care. I love my work and feel privileged to support patients during the very difficult – and often rewarding – time of cancer treatment and follow-up.
Conditions I Treat
- Genitourinary cancers (prostate, bladder, kidney, testicular, etc.)
- Gynecologic cancers (endometrial, cervical, etc.)
- General radiation oncology
