Treatment Focus

General hematology and oncology with key focus on MDS and lymphoma

Treatment Philosophy

I have tried to encompass a quote by Anthony Del Monte during my short relationship with Oncology: “Cancer does not have a face until it’s yours or someone you know”. I hold this very close to my heart. I have witnessed fear, anguish and uncertainty this diagnosis brings in the life of not only the patient but the entire family.  Hence, my goal has been to provide comprehensive care to the patient and family as well.  I feel it is my core responsibility to support my patients during their tough journey and guide them with appropriate medical decision making.  I  joined Fox Chase and the Temple University Hospital – Jeanes Campus because of the unique opportunity to provide and institute the essence of general hematology and oncology services at Jeanes Campus.  I see it as an excellent platform to expand the arena in the future to bring awareness regarding prevention of cancer in the community.
