My Passion for Healthcare

Taking care of Hematology and Oncology patients in medical school and residency was extremely rewarding on an intellectual as well as an interpersonal level. This inspired me to enter fellowship training where I had the opportunity to see a diverse patient population and also participate in clinical and lab research. This allowed me to learn not only about the disease processes in depth but also better ways to care for the patient as a whole rather than just a medical diagnosis.

I enjoy seeing patients with a variety of diagnoses including leukemia, lymphoma, cancers of the breast, lung, colon and prostate, and melanoma.

My practices are located at the Shivers Cancer Center at University Medical Center at Brackenridge and at Seton Hays.
