Treatment Philosophy

Navigating a new cancer diagnosis can be challenging and overwhelming. I feel honored to be part of a team that provides patients and their families not only specialized oncologic care, but also the support and resources needed. The collaborative network of clinicians, nurses, and researchers at Fox Chase allows me to provide my patients individualized treatment options, novel therapies, and access to clinical trials. In addition, I strive to provide my patients and their families compassionate and comprehensive clinical care throughout each aspect of their journey.
