About

About

My goal is to provide the best care possible to all my patients. I treat my patients as though they are my family members. I will do everything I can to help patients navigate through the complexity of today's health care system. I always try to explain medical problems in terms that patients can understand. I have a focus on solid tumors, with particular emphasis on breast, prostate and colon cancer. Chances are, I can explain things in ways that make good sense to you.



I believe that each patient is a complex individual with his/her own unique biopsychosocial components. What this really means is that I care about how you feel, how you want to be treated, how you live, and how life has affected you. I don't just treat your disease; I treat the complete you. Unlike, most modern days physicians, I do spend a reasonable amount of time with my patients and address all of their concerns.



I understand that when you need to see your doctor, you don't want to wait 1 to 2 months for an appointment. My office always has same day appointments available for acute illnesses. My staff and I always work hard to ensure that your waiting time in the office is minimal. Please try to call for my availability before you come.
