I was first drawn to medicine because I wanted to help people. I chose hematology and oncology because they are rapidly evolving fields—through their advances, I can treat people using the newest therapies. More importantly, I can care for people by forging meaningful relationships with them.
I treat each patient as a partner, and together, we work toward a common goal. Communication with my patients and their caregivers is essential to providing the best care. I also prioritize providing my patients with access to clinical trials.
At Perlmutter Cancer Center, my colleagues and I approach cancer treatment as a collaboration between specialties. We offer patients the most current clinical trials and we strive to provide as much support as possible for patients and families during such a difficult time.
My clinical and research interest is gastrointestinal cancers, with a focus on liver and biliary cancer, pancreatic cancer, and gastric cancer. Currently, I am studying whether radiation therapy in combination with immunotherapy is an effective treatment for pancreatic cancer.
