Philosophy

I strive to get to know my patient and their families so that I can provide them with a personalized care plan to treat their cancer which considers their individual preferences.  I believe in close communication with my patient and the excellent multidisciplinary cancer care team at Arizona Oncology to provide the best possible care for my patients.  I aim to keep up-to-date with all of the rapid advances in cancer care so that this can benefit my patients.  I believe in empathetic and honest communication with my patient so that we can make the best decisions together to treat the disease.

Personal

A former high school field hockey player and medical school debate competitor, I currently enjoy all sports and the occasional debate. In my free time I love to spend time with my wife and daughter traveling and learning new things.  Whenever I get a chance I like to catch up on my reading, especially biographies and fiction books.
