Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I am site director of radiation oncology at the WellSpan York Cancer Center. I was previously an attending physician at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. I completed medical school and residency at Johns Hopkins. I specialize in external beam radiotherapy (IMRT), brachytherapy (seeds/internal radiation), radiosurgery/stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), and proton therapy.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I strive, deliberately, every day, to provide every patient the care I would give anyone in my own family. Without a doubt, a physician will be successful when two important aspects coexist: the physician has real, deep concern for his patient; and the physician is knowledgeable, skilled, and able to access and use state-of-the-art treatments for his patient. Cancer treatment is difficult, and the cancer patient who engages with his or her cancer doctor is entrusting the doctor with his or her life during one of the most difficult times imaginable. Only with the most serious commitment can a cancer doctor accept this level of trust.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I was born in Jerusalem, Israel. I am married and a father of two and am a jazz pianist and an avid cyclist.
