Patient Care Setting

Radiation Oncology

Biography

Throughout my medical training, I have been fascinated with the cross section of technology and healthcare. Radiation Oncology is an ever evolving field that provides an opportunity to utilize both physics and biology to help patients with cancer. My goal is to give my patients the best care possible by learning and applying the continuous advancements occurring in cancer treatment. I strive to provide the best understanding of evidence based medicine for any situation, while emphasizing shared decision making with the patient and family.

My areas of interest include the utilization of brachytherapy for gynecologic cancers, genitourinary cancers, as well as skin cancers. I also maintain a general radiation oncology practice and feel comfortable treating all other disease sites. On a personal note – my name Khush means “happy” in my native language. I aim to embody my name by maintaining a positive and optimistic attitude with colleagues and patients, while staying respectful and prepared for the challenges of cancer.
