Philosophy

Cancer is a daunting disease. It's a disease that impacts patients and their entire families. Through professional experience as a practitioner in cancer care and through personal experience as the son of a cancer patient, I know that the disease and its treatment can often seem insurmountable. I want patients to know that I understand how difficult it is to navigate this time in their lives and that through modern treatments, such as radiation therapy, we can fight their disease TOGETHER. 

My primary focus is on high precision radiation therapy, with IMRT, brachytherapy or stereotactic radiation therapy, which allows for the highest amount of tumor control while minimizing side effects. Our multidisciplinary team at Arizona Oncology is composed of like minded nurses, physicists, dosimetrists and radiation therapists who would be honored to help you in your fight against cancer.
