About Me

Philosophy of Care

I chose this field to treat pancreatic and hepatobiliary cancers because they are aggressive cancers that require a team approach for treatment and complex multi-disciplinary management. I treat all my patients as family during this vulnerable time in their life and hope to educate them about their disease so that they can make the best decision for their care.
