Care Philosophy

As a surgical oncologist with over 10 years of experience, I understand that a diagnosis of cancer is devastating, not only for the patient but for the entire family. My goal is not only to treat the cancer, but also educate my patients about their options, and guide and support them and their families, through a difficult and uncertain journey. I am always upfront and honest and pride myself on being available and accessible to my patients and their families.
