About

About

I am a Rehab Medicine doctor who specializes in treating cancer patients. I help patients return to their previous level of function by treating their pain or any disability from cancer diagnosis through their cancer treatment and beyond. Common conditions that I treat are post-mastectomy pain, lymphedema, shoulder pain, weakness and difficulty with daily activities. Common cancer patients that I encounter are cancers of the breast, head and neck, brain, spine and sarcomas. I work with a multi-disciplinary team including physical, occupational, lymphedema and speech therapists. Focusing on the highest quality of life for cancer patients and survivors is the ultimate goal of my practice.
