I am a medical oncologist with board certifications in medical oncology, hematology and internal medicine. I care for patients at Memorial Cancer Institute who are battling various stages of breast cancer.
Oncology is a rapidly changing field, where new developments and treatment options are continually being discovered. I consider it a critical part of my job to stay up-to-date on the latest findings. I am actively involved in clinical trials and research at Memorial Cancer Institute, which means our patients have access to new drugs that are not yet offered nationwide. I am proud to be making a difference in the lives of my patients and bringing us all closer to a cure.
While the technical sides of my job are crucial, I never forget that my main purpose is to help my patients during a very difficult time in their life. I want all of my patients to feel comfortable communicating with me, to know that I will listen to everything they have to say and that together we will find the right treatment options that will give them the best quality of life.
Before joining Memorial, I practiced medical oncology in New Mexico for five years. I also worked at Jackson Memorial Hospital and the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, where I trained with world-renowned authorities in the treatment of breast cancer.
