Radiation Oncology

I wanted to be a physician from a very young age. While doing cancer research during medical school, I was drawn to radiation oncology. Today, I am a radiation oncologist who cares for people with thoracic cancer, such as lung cancer, mesothelioma, thymoma, and esophageal cancer. I completed my residency training at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and then moved to Houston, where I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center for almost ten years.

I am currently a member of the disease management teams caring for people with thoracic cancer and people with cancer that has spread to another area of the body, which is also called metastatic disease. I continue to do research in both of these areas. My research focuses on using radiation therapy to treat stage IV disease. I have led and collaborated on multiple studies examining the role of radiation therapy for stage IV cancer. In particular, my colleagues and I have selected people with stage IV disease who may benefit from more aggressive treatment.

Research is important in identifying the best treatment for a patient, but I gain the most fulfillment from being involved in my patients’ challenging cancer journeys. That is the most rewarding component of my work. I always do my best to convey to patients that their care is my highest priority, and that I am honored to share this part of their lives with them and their loved ones.

Research is important in identifying the best treatment for a patient, but I gain the most fulfillment from being involved in my patients’ challenging cancer journeys.
