Treatment Philosophy

I am a medical oncologist who since 1991 has been devoted to only seeing patients with a diagnosis of lung cancer or mesothelioma. I am involved with a wide range of studies in lung cancer. Some of these involve new drugs. I work within an experienced multi-specialty team of surgeons, radiation oncologists, and pulmonists. All of these have a devotion and interest in the diagnosis, treatment and care of the patient with a chest malignancy. I joined Fox Chase Cancer Center in 1999.
