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 Focus

Surgical pathology with focus on lung and mediastinal diseases.

Treatment Philosophy

As a surgical pathologist, I am responsible for diagnosing diseases and staging the extent of malignancies on varying sized tissue samples procured from patients by clinicians and radiologists.  For example, microscopic examination of a breast core biopsy uncovers the cause of mammographic calcifications, and diagnosing a particular subtype of lung cancer from a surgical specimen ensures that the patient receives appropriate treatment. 

With particular interest in lung diseases, I collaborate with pathologists, clinicians, and researchers at the Center, and participate in national and international studies related to tumors, mostly lung, and pulmonary non-neoplastic diseases.  In addition, I participate in national and international lung pathology societies and educate peers and physicians-in-training.
