Biography

As a physician I aim to provide patients with an understanding of their medical condition and guidance as they navigate complex medical decisions. I consider honesty, compassion and my medical knowledge as foundational principles upon which I seek to build a trusting patient-physician relationship. Getting to know my patients, their unique circumstances and goals is a key aspect of my practice, in order to provide patients with a personalized plan of care.

I obtained my medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and went on to complete internship, residency, and a chief medical residency in Internal Medicine at Scripps Mercy Hospital in San Diego. I pursued my Hematology and Oncology fellowship training at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts where I carried out laboratory research studying the effects of proteasome and HDAC inhibitors in lymphoma.

I have a special interest in plasma cell disorders including myeloma and amyloidosis, and would like to provide patients with the opportunity to participate in well-designed clinical trials for these and other related diseases.
