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.
My main work is in diagnostic imaging using radiotracers for staging, follow-up, and monitoring of various tumors. I also treat patients with unsealed source radiotracer for thyroid cancer, NHL, pancreatic cancer, and bone pain palliation. I’m authorized user for SIR-sphere and Therasphere as well.
