Bio

Board certified radiation oncologist with strong interest in cutting edge technology use in the community.

I have been involved in technology evaluation and implementation and have served on the radiation executive board of US Oncology. Currently I am a managing director of Florida Cancer Affiliates.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
