Care Philosophy

My goal is to utilize all the resources available to me to treat the cancer and to put it into remission. I realize that there is a fine balance between treatment of the cancer and a patient's quality of life, so I listen to my patients needs and value their input. My greatest joy is having a patient who is there to watch their children grow or celebrates another birthday or anniversary.

In My Own Words

I am a Board Certified Hematologist and Oncologist with the Mercy Medical Group and have been practicing here in Sacramento for the last 14 years. Prior to joining Mercy Medical Group, I was in private practice.  I completed medical school at Chicago Medical School and obtained my degree in Internal Medicine from the University of Arizona. While there, I conducted clinical research on patients with ovarian cancer and studied the effectiveness of chemotherapy agents on ovarian cancer. As a Fellow at the University of California Davis, I was awarded the American Society of Clinical Oncology Merit award for research in lung cancer. I decided on the field of Hematology and Oncology because I like to help people and find helping cancer patients, in their greatest time of need, is a fulfilling career. I work with a talented team of radiation oncologists and surgical specialists who meet weekly for a multi-disciplinary review of oncology patients to ensure all options are being considered. I reside in Sacramento with my wife and three daughters. In addition to spending time with my family, I enjoy the art of winemaking. Member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the American Society of Hematology, and the Sierra Sacramento Valley Medical Society. Invited faculty of the annual Sacramento Cancer Conference.
