  • Is this information wrong?


  • As a fellowship trained breast surgeon, I treat patients with a very broad range of breast disease from benign to malignant. These include breast pain, benign breast tumors, mammographic abnormalities, nipple discharge, family history of breast cancer, high risk gene mutations and also those with various forms of breast cancer.

    I care for each patient with compassion and use a multidisciplinary approach to care.

    I speak English and Spanish fluently.
