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.
