About

Bio

I have been practicing outpatient Interventional Radiology for over 6 years. I believe this setting allows me to be more efficient and give better care. I have seen IR change into a diverse, cutting-edge specialty with a huge number of disease states that we can treat. My patients are family. I practice evidence-based medicine and offer the most up-to-date treatments. IR has recently been approved as a separate specialty, and I want to be one of the first to practice independent of a Diagnostic/Hospital-based Radiology group. I went into Radiology to do IR, and I love what I do. I believe the future of medicine is minimally-invasive therapies. These treatments decrease recovery time, and complications.

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.
