Biography

I first became interested in head and neck surgery during my first year of medical school. I have had the great fortune to have trained with many talented surgeons, who are also leaders in our field. They have armed me with the skills necessary to be the best doctor I can be. Both my parents are cancer survivors. I am so very grateful for the excellent care they received, and I am compelled to ensure that my patients have the same, if not better care. I am truly honored to be a part of the Head and Neck, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Division at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.
