From the Doctor:
After earning a medical degree and a doctorate in radiation oncology, I pursued advanced training in Europe and the U.S., and most recently served as an associate professor at Rutgers University, where I was an attending physician and a member of the faculty.
I’ve had the privilege to practice radiation oncology in three continents, witnessing the technological advances leading to better treatment outcome. I focus on high-tech radiotherapy, including brachytherapy, image guided radiotherapy, and stereotactic body radiotherapy.
I look forward to raising my children in Jacksonville and enjoying its many outdoor pleasures. In my spare time, I like to kitesurf and ride motorcycles.
