About

Bio

I am a general surgeon with a special interest in diseases of the breast, particularly breast cancer. I am especially interested in the genetics of breast cancer and educating breast cancer survivors about their long term health and how to protect it.

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.
