Patients Seen: Adults

I am a board cer­ti­fied oncologist/​hema­tol­o­gist who has been prac­tic­ing for more than 20 years. I believe in dis­cussing dif­fer­ent options of treat­ment with patients and help them make an informed deci­sion about their care. I am respect­ful of the choic­es patients make. Engag­ing fam­i­ly mem­bers in patient care is also very impor­tant to me as can­cer affects the whole fam­i­ly. I usu­al­ly will explore oth­er option includ­ing clin­i­cal tri­als for the patient. Opti­miz­ing patient qual­i­ty of life with improv­ing their over­all out­come is vital­ly impor­tant to me.

Sep­tem­ber is prostate can­cer aware­ness month. Since prostate can­cer is the sec­ond most com­mon form of can­cer in men, start­ing at age 45 for those at an increased risk and age 50 for those at an aver­age risk, screen­ing options are avail­able to help catch can­cer at an ear­ly stage. Take charge of your health and sched­ule with your pri­ma­ry care provider to dis­cuss fam­i­ly his­to­ry and risk fac­tors to deter­mine if screen­ing is right for you.
