“I find it highly gratifying to be able to help people through one of the most difficult times in their lives, and I rejoice whenever that includes a cure.”
Cancer care is not just about treating a disease; it is about treating a whole person who happens to have cancer. My job is to partner with patients to design a treatment plan that is customized to their physical, psychological, and spiritual makeup, and to coordinate a team of cancer care providers to deliver the optimum treatment to each individual patient. I believe that every person with cancer deserves to be treated in a way that offers them the best opportunity to live as long as possible while maintaining their quality of life.
I chose oncology as my specialty because I was attracted to the cutting edge science of cancer care, as well as the opportunity to serve patients with a true need in the most difficult time of their lives.

Why The Everett Clinic?
I was serving as the Chief Medical Officer of a large midwestern clinic and practicing oncology when I was recruited to help found a new cancer center in Everett. I had never been to the Pacific Northwest and fell in love with it as soon as I saw the mountains and Puget Sound. I came to The Everett Clinic for the opportunity to continue to practice cancer care within an excellent multispecialty clinic, and to lead the development of a new state of the art cancer center, the Providence Regional Cancer Partnership. I am very proud of the quality of care delivered by The Everett Clinic and the Cancer Partnership.
