About Me

In addition to believing in and seeing the success of the MD Anderson model of cancer care, I am excited to join an amazing team of doctors, nurses and leaders at the Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center. Their enthusiasm and compassion is palpable and contagious. I found Jacksonville to be a "hidden gem" of Florida. It is a vibrant and growing community.

As a physician, I believe in personalized comprehensive cancer care. This approach maximizes the chance of success by integrating cutting-edge therapeutic advances with the specific needs and expectations unique to each patient and their family. I strongly believe most cancers will be conquered in the near future because of recent, unprecedented breakthroughs in science and clinical research. I am grateful for the chance to apply these advances in clinic aiming to provide the best treatment to the right patient and at the right time.
