About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

My mother was a nurse in a family practice office while I was growing up in York, Pa. I was around the medical field and medical professionals frequently. My mother's compassion for those in need was a great inspiration to me.

What I want my patients to know about me:

My personal mission is to provide the highest quality care in the most compassionate way. I will accept nothing but the best from myself and my staff. My number one goal is to cure. My highest passion is to find methods to reduce the side effects from cancer treatment.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I exercise at the gym every other day. I take dance lessons: swing, hustle and country two step. I play golf.
