About Me

My first responsibility as an oncologist is to teach a patient and their family about their diagnosis of cancer, the natural history of the disease, how it is treated, and the role of radiotherapy in their disease process. I explain how my treatment team will provide them not only first rate care, but also the compassion and support that all cancer patients deserve.
