I am a board-certified radiation oncologist specializing in the treatment of gastrointestinal and lung cancers. These diseases are often best treated by a combination of therapies, so I work closely with medical and surgical oncologists to deliver coordinated, state-of-the-art care. I have experience with advanced techniques such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), and stereotactic radiation therapy, which can be used to maximize the effectiveness of radiation while reducing toxicity.
It is important to me that each patient understands his or her disease and its treatment, so I am committed to being friendly, accessible, and clear to anyone who comes under my care.
