Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I was born in Jerusalem, Israel, and came to the United States in 1987. I trained at Johns Hopkins. My experience with cancer patients was very meaningful, and I remained at Hopkins for training in radiation therapy for adults as well as children. Taking care of patients fighting cancer is a profound privilege, for which I am grateful every single day.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I met my wife in college; she's a veterinarian and is superb at her job.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
When I'm not taking care of my patients, I'm taking care of my two children, and they are a tremendous gift. And after I put them to bed, once a week I play the piano in a jazz ensemble. I also read novels whenever I can find free time.
