University of Pennsylvania

Special Interests:

I am board certified in both Medical Oncology and Hematology. Although I treat a wide spectrum of cancer and blood problems, I am especially interested in breast cancer, lung cancer, brain tumors and gastrointestinal cancers. I have significant experience in clinical trials and have run a national study of lung cancer in the past.

Board Certification:

Medical Oncology, Hematology

Personal Interests:

As most of my colleagues and patients know, my wife and I love to ski. We started skiing about 20 years ago and fell in love with it (perhaps because I grew up in the very snowy area of upstate New York!). In addition, we have travelled many times to Europe. We even got a tutor to help us learn Italian!
