All patients deserve equal, adequate and compassionate medical care. Medicine is a team effort which includes many professionals, (physicians, nurses, administrators, technicians and so forth), coming together for the care of a patient. My commitment as a patient care advocate and promoter of healthcare ethics, education and professionalism speaks to my dedication as a team member on each patient's medical care team.
Clinical Interests: Multi modality Body imaging. Abdominal MRI, especially hepatobiliary system, the female pelvis and vascular imaging. I enjoy participating in medical student and resident education in radiology.
Research Interests: Disorders of the genitourinary tract. Gastrointestinal solid tumors.
