Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I am the Site Director of radiation oncology at the York Cancer Center and formerly Johns Hopkins faculty attending physician. I specialize in radiation therapy (IMRT), brachytherapy (seeds/internal radiation), proton therapy, and radiosurgery/stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT). I led the Hopkins team that developed the Hopkins SBRT program and treated the first SBRT patient at Hopkins.
FORMAL POST-GRADUATE TRAINING:
Prostate brachytherapy (seeds)
Brain stereotactic radiosurgery
What I want my patients to know about me:
I strive every day to provide every patient the care I would give to my own family. I think a physician can succeed in doing this when two things are met: First, the physician has true, deep concern for his patient. Second, the physician is knowledgeable, skilled and experienced, and able to access the state-of-the-art technology for his patient.
Cancer treatment is one of the most difficult times in a person's life. When a cancer patient entrusts the doctor with his or her life, only with the most serious commitment can the doctor accept this level of trust. I am committed in this way to every one of my patients.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I was born in Jerusalem, Israel. I am married and a father of two. I am a jazz pianist and an avid cyclist.
