To ensure the accuracy of our patient satisfaction scores, we require that providers who see patients receive a minimum number of completed patient-submitted surveys before their reviews are listed on their profiles. Star ratings on this site are collected on a rolling basis from the previous 12 months.
Additionally, some of the physicians listed on our site do not see patients directly, and therefore, do not receive evaluation and ratings from patients.

Treatment Philosophy

For a cancer patient the ideal treatment maximizes quality of life, while minimizing side effects. My philosophy as an oncologist is to guide the patient toward achieving this goal. I strive to ensure that patients and their families have a comprehensive understanding of their disease and available treatment options. In addition, I believe a patient deserves to be treated functionally, emotionally, and socially, as a whole person. By being a part of Fox Chase Cancer Center, I will be working with a team devoted to making this happen.

After completing my fellowship at the Medical University of South Carolina, I am excited to join Fox Chase and the vibrant medical community in Philadelphia. I was immediately impressed by the collegiality of the faculty and staff, as well as the multidisciplinary approach to their care. I am enthusiastic about being involved in the treatment of a variety of solid tumors.

A few years ago, when I was 46, something unusual showed up on my yearly mammogram. So they did an ultrasound and said I should come back every six months for monitoring for the next two years.

For 18 months, there was no change. Then, in April of 2023, I went for my last follow-up scan. When we finished, instead of sending me home, the radiologist came into the room to talk to me. I knew then that something wasn’t right.

She said there had been a change since my last scan. It looked like I had a malignancy in my right breast, and we would need a biopsy to be sure.
