Breast and Gynecologic Medical Oncologist, Valley Health System, NJ, USA
Work Experience: 5+ years in medical oncology

“I am driven by the treatment advances that have occurred in oncology in the last decades. Patients are living longer, being diagnosed earlier, and have improvement in their quality of life during treatment. I am driven every day by the incredible women I have the privilege of treating. Cancer is a life-changing diagnosis, and I am humbled every day by the ability to impact my patients’ lives as they go through treatment.”
