I am excited to be joining Fox Chase as a radiologist after fellowship training in abdominal and musculoskeletal imaging. As part of your multidisciplinary care team, I understand the great importance that imaging has in the timely and accurate diagnosis and treatment of cancer. I am also excited to work with our surgery, oncology and pathology colleagues as we follow you and help tailor your treatment plan accordingly. It is a great privilege to be a part of your care here at Fox Chase.
