Bio

I have been a practicing physician in a group practice associated with Jefferson. Recently, I joined the Einstein Medica Oncology Hematology Associates. I am the lead physician for Oncology at the new Einstein Medical Center Montgomery. I had a heart transplant 11 years ago and can answer questions from a patient standpoint. I enjoy my family, good wines, classical guitar and my practice. I also am a member ACPE and have an MBA in health management. I am a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology and currently on the Clinical Practice Committee. Member of American Society of Breast Diseases.
