About

Bio

I am a hematologist-oncologist in practice for 35 years. I have interest specifically in breast cancer management, lung cancer (specifically screening issues) and thrombo-embolic disorders.

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.
