Summary

  • I am a board-certified medical oncologist with more than 20 years experience in direct patient care. I provide full scope of oncologic care, including adjuvant therapy, treatment for advanced disease, cancer prevention strategies, screening and testing for hereditary cancer, and palliation. I am interested in the latest developments in immune-oncology and molecular profiling of cancer which leads to understanding which drugs have a greater chance for success, and of tailoring therapy to patients according to individual differences in metabolism and tumor susceptibility. I joined Beverly Hills Cancer Center and will see your patients within 2-3 days in most cases.
