Practice Philosophy:I am a strong patient advocate and want my patients and their families to feel heard. With a foundation of respect and hope, I use my advanced surgical skills and expertise in chemotherapy and emerging therapies to provide innovative care from the time of initial diagnosis through cancer survivorship. I feel fortunate to have the support of superb advanced practice providers and nurses who share a team-based approach in caring for patients. We work with our patients on their journeys to health.
