Biography

When a patient is diagnosed with cancer, he or she is faced with a lot of questions and uncertainty of what the future holds. My philosophy is to provide as much information as possible so that patients can make the best decisions for themselves and their families and so that together we can face any fears or worries head on.

I chose this field because my hope is to make the lives of cancer patients better – whether it is through direct patient care or my research, which focuses on pancreatobiliary cancers, as well as weight loss and muscle wasting related to cancer.

In addition to being passionate about cancer care, I have many interests outside of work that I enjoy sharing with my patients such as sports, travel and music.

- Gastric cancer
- Liver cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Colorectal cancer
