Background

I provide care for a broad range of oncology and hematology conditions in our suburban clinic in Voorhees, New Jersey. Our patients benefit from a small, approachable and welcoming clinic in a suburban setting that also is linked to the world-class medical expertise, clinical research and state-of-the-art facilities at Children's Hospital in Philadelphia. Our team spends a significant amount of time answering questions and explaining complicated treatments, and we work hard to provide treatment for almost all cancers treated at the main hospital in Philadelphia.

While I maintain a clinical expertise with liquid tumors, my specific research interest is in solid tumors and kidney tumors in particular. My past research experience also includes work on neuroblastoma.
