I am a breast medical oncologist who takes an integrative medicine approach to cancer care. I incorporate complementary therapies into cancer treatment to promote patient’s physical strength and mental resilience, helping them to maintain the best quality of life possible and to support their treatment goals. Such therapies include diet and lifestyle changes, mind-body therapies, physical exercise, acupuncture, and massage therapy. I also counsel patients on dietary supplements so that they can avoid risks associated with their improper use. As a board-certified acupuncturist, I use acupuncture to reduce cancer treatment-induced side effects.

I work with patients who have been diagnosed with any type of cancer, and have a special focus on patients with breast cancer. My goal is to develop and deliver state-of-the-art evidence-based integrative oncology care to enhance and potentially extend survival for cancer patients.

My research interests include the efficacy and mechanisms of complementary therapies in oncology practice. As principal investigator and author of a number of clinical trials, I examine the effectiveness of acupuncture and explore the mechanisms by which it may improve quality of life for cancer patients. I also write review and opinion articles, review manuscripts for professional journals, and am a member of the NCI Physician Data Query Complementary and Alternative Medicine Editorial Board.
