I am a medical oncologist specializing in genitourinary cancers. I became a physician and an oncologist for many reasons including the ability to sometimes cure life-threatening illness, having the opportunity to care for ill patients, and being a part of a rapidly evolving and improving field. But perhaps the most important reason for entering oncology for me was the chance to build deep relationships with patients and their families at a time when they are the most vulnerable and in need, to be their advocate and resource, to guide them through a grueling time and hope with them for the best.
I believe that every cancer patient deserves the utmost compassionate, individualized, expert and prompt care. I came to Fox Chase after completing my fellowship at the University of Chicago because here I can offer just that. By working together with each patient, their family and a team of my expert colleagues, we can harness the most recent advances in oncology for each patient.
In my clinical practice I focus on the care of patients with prostate, kidney, bladder, penile, adrenal and testicular cancer and I am proud to be part of a large multidisciplinary team of distinguished clinicians and researchers at Fox Chase. Over the last decade, the number of treatment options for patients with advanced cancers has greatly expanded and at Fox Chase we can offer both the latest standard-of-care as well as new experimental approaches. My particular research interest is in health outcomes such as adherence to oral anticancer drugs, as well as clinical trials development for genitourinary cancers.
A cancer diagnosis is one of the most difficult times in a person’s life; my primary goal is to bring together all the resources of a cutting-edge cancer center to the patient in a compassionate and individualized manner.
