I believe no one should have to face a diag­no­sis of can­cer alone. I strive to pro­vide per­son­al­ized, com­pas­sion­ate, and the high­est qual­i­ty care for my patients. I believe in involv­ing my patients in the deci­sion mak­ing process and using a com­pre­hen­sive, team-based approach.

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.
