I am a board-certified breast surgical oncologist whose clinical practice is devoted to caring for women with breast cancer. I also treat patients with benign breast disease. I work closely with a multidisciplinary team at the cancer center to make certain my patients receive cutting-edge care.

I treat each patient as a partner, and together, we work toward a common goal of managing their disease. I believe that as a breast cancer surgeon, it is my job to educate patients about their diagnosis and treatment options. This empowers women to navigate their care with confidence.

Communication with my patients and their loved ones is essential to providing the best care and I understand the emotional impact of a new diagnosis of breast cancer. I believe in not only educating a patient about her disease, but also about coping strategies to manage this challenging time in her life. Regardless of disease stage and treatment plan, I stay involved in my patients’ care throughout treatment- up to and beyond surgery.

I was first drawn to breast surgery because it is one in which I can develop on-going meaningful relationships with my patients and this is still the aspect of my work that I am most passionate about today. I always remember that it is a unique privilege to be able to care for my patients in such an intimate way.


  • General Surgery

    A general surgeon is a medical professional who performs surgery on patients. General surgeons typically perform common surgeries and have attended college and medical school to learn the skills needed to perform them successfully. They also care for their patients before and after operations and can give an accurate prognosis after the surgery is complete and the patient has had time to heal.
