Assistant Professor, Department of Hematology/Oncology

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 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.
