I am a breast medical oncologist at Memorial Healthcare System. I provide care, support and guidance for patients with breast cancer throughout their diagnosis, cancer treatment and follow-up care.
I began my career working on medical research, which was focused specifically on breast cancer. I became interested in how our research was impacting actual people who were battling cancer. This, along with some close family members who were diagnosed with cancer, made me more interested in the clinical side of cancer care. I decided I wanted to champion people as they battled cancer and care for them throughout their journey.
I focus on each patient as a person - not just his or her diagnosis. My goal is to explain everything that you can expect during your treatment and answer all of your questions. I want my patients to leave my office feeling empowered with information and more at ease.
Cancer can affect many parts of your life and be emotionally overwhelming to deal with. This is normal and we need to address all of your concerns in order to help you feel your best. I focus on what I describe as whole-person care. This means that I am here to assist with anything in regards to your overall wellbeing, whether it is spiritual, physical or mental.
At Memorial, patients are our number one priority. You can rest assured that everyone on our team is here for you. We will walk with you on this journey, support you and be rooting for you every step of the way.
I also had the honor of being chosen as one of two physicians for the Clinical Breast Oncology program under the direct mentorship of Dr. Marc Lippman, an internationally known thought leader in the field of breast oncology. The use of Tamoxifen in the treatment of breast cancer was one of Dr. Lippman’s contributions to the field. He has mentored many well-known breast cancer physician scientists in the world, and it was a privilege to participate in this unique training experience.
