  • Hematology
  • Oncology
  • Hospice and Palliative Care

Balancing symptoms and quality of life of each cancer patient is a top priority. My job is to get the maximum efficacy from the cancer treatment I choose while minimizing the side effects that impact the day to day quality of life of my patients. Helping my cancer patients live longer is not my only goal; how they live is equally important to me.
