About Me

When I was 14, my cousin was diagnosed with acute leukemia. I wanted to do something to help, but wasn’t able. Since then, I’ve had a need to make things that aren’t right, better, which led me to a career in oncology and hematology. I genuinely care what happens to people, and when they are ill or have a medical condition, I want to be able to help.

I have been practicing hematology and oncology for more than 20 years and have treated people for a broad variety of conditions. More recently, I have been focusing on treating patients with benign blood diseases, head and neck cancers, metastatic sarcomas, and skin cancers that have spread.

My office provides care in a compassionate, humanistic way. We honestly care about our patients. We know everyone wants the best care possible for themselves and their families, and we do everything possible to provide it. In our office, we perform bone marrow aspiration and biopsies, and administer chemotherapy through most routes. We also offer standard and innovative treatments for people with hematologic and oncologic disorders.

I have conducted basic science and clinical research in melanoma. I have been principle investigator for our Institution for Cooperative Trials in leukemia, lymphomas, and solid tumors. Additionally, I am a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, American Society of Hematology, American College of Physicians, and American Medical Association.
