Family Medicine

I am a board-certified family medicine physician who specializes in caring for people with a genetic susceptibility to cancer. I provide long-term surveillance for cancer survivors with hereditary cancer syndromes and care for adults and children who don’t have cancer but are at an increased genetic risk. I also have a separate genetics clinic where I provide clinical counseling and genetic testing for people who may have an inherited predisposition to cancer.

My research is focused on identifying people with Lynch syndrome based on their tumor molecular profiles. I am also interested in developing biomarkers for the associated cancers, as many of these types do not currently have proven effective screening methods. Because of my research contributions, I received the Conquer Cancer Foundation’s Allen S. Lichter, MD, Endowed Merit Award in 2018.
