Bio

I am a Women's Imaging Radiologist, specializing primarily in mammography and OB/GYN ultrasound as well as breast MRI.

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.
