Why I am a member of ASCRS: 

This society gives me so much that it’s hard to summarize: scholarship, camaraderie, innovation, and professional support. Most of all, it’s an extremely fun group, and I always look forward to the annual meeting where I can catch up with friends while enjoying an excellent program. I feel privileged to be a part of such a talented and forward-thinking society. I do my best to give back to the ASCRS, but I always end up receiving much more than I ever contribute.

What do you want your patients to know about you?

I want them to know that I am honored that they have chosen me and entrusted me with their care, and I take the responsibility very seriously. My goal is to make sure that they understand their disease and their treatment options well. I have a detailed, methodical approach to clinical problems that ensures I’ve accounted for all the important variables. I work hard to provide the best care possible.
