I am a medical oncologist specializing in genitourinary cancers. Treating patients with cancer is a privilege for me as in the process of diagnosing and treating the illness I get to become the patient’s friend, resource and advocate. In the most difficult times of their life, each cancer patient and their family deserves the best possible care. I strive to provide excellent care by being a good listener, maintaining good communication with patients and my team, staying abreast with the rapidly evolving field of oncology and by providing individualized care to each patient.
I came to Fox Chase for my fellowship and stayed here because I loved the team and realized that at Fox Chase, each patient has the benefit of an interdisciplinary team working together to ensure the highest quality care. This team approach is crucial in determining and implementing the best treatment plan.
In my clinical practice I focus on the care of patients with kidney, prostate bladder, penile, adrenal and testicular cancer and I am proud to be part of a large multidisciplinary team of distinguished clinicians and researchers at Fox Chase. Over the last decade, the number of treatment options for patients with advanced cancers has greatly expanded and at Fox Chase we can offer both the latest standard-of-care as well as new experimental approaches. My particular research interest is in developing biomarkers that can help understand the behavior of kidney cancers as well as clinical trial development for genitourinary cancers.
