Profile

NOTE:  The health and safety of our members is always our top priority. To focus our resources during the pandemic,  we have temporarily changed available services at certain medical centers. Go to kp.org/coronavirus for the latest.

Also, If you haven’t done so already, I encourage you to become a registered user on kp.org so that you can access care while remaining in the safety of your home (kp.org/register).  Whether it is getting mail order prescriptions, having virtual visits, or sending secure messages, our mobile app helps us remain connected at all times, but especially during this critical period.


Welcome to my Web page. You’ve taken a positive step in improving our communication, which is so vital to your health care.

First, you should know that you’ll be treated by top hematology/oncology physicians, as well as the most caring nurses and staff. You’ll be offered a wide range of options for possible treatment, including chemotherapy (intravenous or oral), biologic therapy, targeted therapy, and opportunities to participate in research trials.

All of your specialists, from your surgeon to your oncologist to your pharmacist will have access to your labs, records, radiology films, and care plans. We’ll supplement your care with the power of the internet, so you can send secure email messages to me or your other physicians and fill prescriptions from home.

Please see the links on this page to contact me and for additional resources.

My advice to patients:

1. Call or secure message us with any concerns. Cancer care can be complicated; we can give you answers and reassurance.

2. Please bring a family member or a good friend to your first visit and to other important meetings with your physician. Having the support of a person you trust can be vital to making our meetings fruitful.

3. My goal is to give you the longest and best quality of life possible. Please communicate your goals and priorities to me so that I can help you fulfill your goals.

4. Stay positive. The therapies are so much easier and more effective than they used to be.

What My Patients Say

I really like my doctor. He is pleasant and easy to talk to. When I had to have a second round of chemo, he actually seemed as upset about it as I felt. It makes you feel that they really care when they show empathy for their patients. - LM
