Treatment Philosophy

I chose to join Fox Chase Cancer Center after completing my fellowship training here because I liked the work environment. My fellowship training with world-renowned pathologists at Fox Chase has strengthened my diagnostic skills and expertise in cancer pathology.  

Joining the faculty at Fox Chase has given me the opportunity to better serve cancer patients because of the Center’s focus on multidisciplinary care.

Because other physicians build treatment plans off of pathology reports, I work with surgical, radiation, and medical oncologists to choose the best plan for each individual patient.

I also have a strong passion for cancer prevention and screening, and look for abnormal cells that can be an early sign of cancer.
