I came to Fox Chase Cancer Center in 2006 after completing my fellowship in medical oncology at Yale University. I chose Fox Chase because I was impressed by the Center's ability to provide compassionate care to its patients while striving to advance cancer treatment.
My fascination with emerging knowledge and new treatments in the field of oncology led me to become a medical oncologist. I find that cancer patients are a special group of people, and I enjoy being able to care for them.
In my practice, I specialize in lung cancer as well as cancers of the head and neck. Both are areas that can benefit from new treatment approaches. My research interests have included trials to study new treatments for ALK+ non-small cell lung cancer. Also, I am interested in the development of biomarkers to improve the treatment of head and neck cancers.
When it comes to treatment, I like to have a close communication with my patients throughout the course of their therapy. I believe each patient has his or her own individual needs that should be addressed in deciding on a treatment plan. Being diagnosed with cancer is a life-changing event, and I am sensitive as to how this affects both my patients and their families.
