Cancer is a terrible diagnosis no one ever wants to receive. It can be very frightening for patients to suddenly need to learn about this disease and how it will impact them. I always take the time to talk with my patients about their cancer and explain everything in terms they understand. They need to know their treatment options so they can make the right decision for themselves and their families.
By working at a comprehensive cancer center like The James, we offer a variety of treatments, including surgery, systemic therapy, radiation or enrolling in innovative clinical trials. These opportunities are not always available at smaller facilities. I’m currently participating in multiple clinical trials in our search for more effective therapies.
Every day it’s an honor and a pleasure to work at The James. Cancer treatment here is a team effort, and my colleagues are highly trained experts in their field whom I learn from everyday. Most importantly, we are accessible and caring individuals who go the extra mile for our patients.

News about me
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. 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.
