Why is this doctor not rated?


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

I have had the privilege of working with the many wonderful patients and colleagues here at Fox Chase Cancer Center since 2008.  I am proud to have developed a strong team of practitioners from various disciplines to help patients and families cope with the challenging task of facing cancer and other complicated illnesses.

Cancer and illness affect our lives in many ways.  From time of diagnosis to treatment and survivorship, each stage brings its own unique set of challenges.  We strive to support patients of various ages and backgrounds to navigate the life changes they face.  

Here at Fox Chase, we are in a unique position to collaborate closely with the patient’s care teams.  This allows us to be sensitive to the patient’s entire illness experience and better understand and monitor their treatment. 

My experience with various modalities of psychotherapy allows me to provide a range of treatment options, from “talk” therapy to medication management to help improve the quality of life of patients and their caregivers.  We work closely as a team within our division in order to combine our expertise so that our patients get the best and most compassionate evidence-based care.

  • Breast Cancer

In March 2022, my sister discovered a lump in her breast completely by accident. I consider myself pretty on top of these things, but I decided to do an impromptu self-exam and I also found a lump. From there, both of us went through mammograms, biopsies, and countless appointments before being diagnosed with breast cancer within a week of each other. It was surreal.

  • Bladder Cancer

In 2017, I was having one of the best years of my life. I was about to turn 60, I’d lost weight, and I was feeling good and having a great time. Then, insurance stopped covering the medication I took for acid reflux and my stomach started hurting. I visited my family doctor to ask for something to control the reflux. I also asked for an ultrasound of my stomach and gallbladder, because two other members of my family had had emergency gallbladder surgery, so it was on my mind.
