Meet The Doctor

What can a patient expect when they have you as a doctor?

My patients can expect compassionate care.

What is the most important factor in a doctor-patient relationship and why?

The most important factor is communication. I will always try to explain your treatment options so that you can make an informed decision about your care.

What hobbies or activities do you enjoy when you're not working?

I enjoy running around after my four children (and my husband).

What about your line of work do you find the most rewarding and why?

I enjoy seeing my patients who have been treated for breast cancer return every year and update me on life after cancer treatment.
