Patient Care Philosophy

As a physician associate in oncology since 2002, it is an honor and privilege to be with people on their cancer journey. I believe my patients are more than just their diagnosis. They have physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. It is so rewarding to connect with them on a deeper level as we form such long-lasting relationships. The best part of my job is discussing how patients can be well despite having a significant illness that may not be curable. This considers the whole patient; mind, body, and spirit. Over the course of my career, I have developed a passion for integrative medicine. Integrative medicine works alongside conventional cancer care and gets to the core foundations of wellness to address the whole person. I love discussing healthy eating, physical activity, sleep hygiene, and stress management, among other things.

Currently, I see people with a diagnosis of breast cancer at our Sky Ridge location. I enjoy working with cancer survivors as this often leads to deeper discussions on how to be well using integrative medicine principles. I have completed advanced coursework in Cancer Genetics and Integrative Medicine and Integrative Oncology, including the following:

  • Intensive Course in Cancer Genetics, City of Hope, Duarte, CA
  • Fellowship in Integrative Medicine, Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine, University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ
  • Integrative Oncology Scholars Program, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI
