About

Bio

I am a general surgeon who specializing in the management of breast diseases and breast cancer. I counsel patients that are at high risk for breast cancer. I offer genetic testing both BRCA as well as BREVAgen testing. I discuss prevention of breast cancer with my patients. I also perform thyroid and parathyroid surgeries. My goal is to treat the whole patient.

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.
