I am a board-certified medical oncologist specializing in the care of patients with lung cancer.  As a member of our multidisciplinary team that includes surgeons and radiation oncologists, I am dedicated to providing compassionate care to my patients and creating comprehensive treatment plans that are tailored to their needs and goals.

By performing molecular testing on lung cancers, we have the ability to look for specific gene mutations and personalize the treatment for each patient based on the results of these tests. I have a special interest in the use and development of newer, targeted therapies as treatment for lung cancers.

I also conduct research aimed at advancing the treatment of lung cancer so that patients can live longer and have a better quality of life.  My clinical research focuses on the treatment of patients with lung cancers that have identifiable mutations, and I oversee our clinical research program for patients with EGFR-mutant lung cancers.
