My Specialty and Why I Chose It
I am a Radiation Oncologist. This means mostly I treat cancer patients with radiation therapy. In certain occasions, I also treat patients with "benign" conditions with radiation therapy.
My Practice Philosophy
"Treat others as though they are your own" — was passed down by my father.
