I believe that patients should not have to trav­el far from the com­forts of home to obtain high-qual­i­ty, inno­v­a­tive diag­nos­tic imag­ing and image-guid­ed pro­ce­dur­al ser­vices and am com­mit­ted to offer­ing com­pre­hen­sive care in com­mu­ni­ty-based set­tings that pro­vide patients with increased acces­si­bil­i­ty and famil­iar­i­ty. Hav­ing grown up in the Chica­go sub­urbs, I am delight­ed to give back to the com­mu­ni­ty I call home by pro­vid­ing con­sci­en­tious, empa­thet­ic, evi­dence-based health care.

Novem­ber is Lung Can­cer Aware­ness month. Lung can­cer is the lead­ing cause of can­cer-relat­ed death in the Unit­ed States. How­ev­er, when diag­nosed ear­ly with a low-dose CT scan, lung can­cer is more like­ly to be cur­able, with sur­vival rates jump­ing to near­ly 60 per­cent.
