Insurances We Accept
I’m a thoracic oncologist dedicated to advancing the care and treatment of patients with thoracic malignancies – such as adenocarcinoma, mesothelioma and thymic cancers – by helping develop novel therapeutic approaches to these diseases. Such treatments range from combinations of conventional cytotoxic chemotherapy, novel targeted agents and immunotherapy applied to patients with early stage or advanced disease.

I am a professor of internal medicine, associate division director for education in the Division of Medical Oncology, program director of the Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program and clinical director of the Thoracic Oncology Disease Specific Research Group at OSUCCC – James. I serve on the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) nonsmall cell lung cancer guidelines panel.

At The James, we have a true multi-disciplinary team in thoracic oncology that includes medical oncologists, thoracic surgeons, radiation oncologists, pulmonologists, pathologists, radiologists, nurses, pharmacists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Together we work to continually improve patients’ quality of life and develop effective therapies in an effort to end cancer.

Consulting and Related Relationships

In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
