Bio

I am a practicing diagnostic and interventional radiologist with 15 years of experience including academic and private practice settings and have published and presented nationally on peer-reviewed topics.

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.
