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 primary role is as a member of the genitourinary cancer program treating adrenal tumors, kidney cancer, penile cancer, prostate cancer, bladder cancer, ureteral cancer, urethral cancer, and testicular cancer.
I have had extensive training in several specialized radiation techniques:
I earned doctorate degrees in both medicine and pharmacology research at the Medical University of South Carolina enrolled in the Medical Scientist Training Program. After graduation I joined Fox Chase Cancer Center for my medical residency training in the Department of Radiation Oncology. Upon completing residency I was recruited to become a member of the department faculty treating genitourinary cancers and hematologic cancers. As part of that role, I also conduct research and design clinical trials to both improve upon our current treatments and to develop new technologies in the fight against cancer.
While knowledge and expertise are important, I believe that compassion and personalized care are also essential to being an effective physician. I strive to establish trust and understanding with my patients in order to best help them complete complex and intense cancer therapies in order to achieve the best possible outcomes. This is an exciting time to be at Fox Chase Cancer Center. The faculty and staff at Fox Chase work as a team with the common goal of providing world class cancer treatment. Not only do I have access to state of the art technologies and cutting-edge treatments, but I also have the opportunity to develop new treatments that will improve the way we treat cancer in the future.

My research has focused on improving the safety and efficacy of delivering SBRT. I will also focus on developing new ways to deliver radiation treatments to cancers that are otherwise untreatable with conventional therapies. These methods will use exciting new drug and radiation combinations to enhance the effects and targeting of radiation on tumor cells.
