Care Philosophy

The diagnosis of a tumor in the head and neck is daunting for any patient given the possible implications for appearance, speech, and general quality of life. My goal is to establish a foundation of trust and understanding such that my patients fully understand the nature of their disease, the treatment options available, and expected outcomes. I am committed to treating my patients with a combination of well-established therapies and new technology to optimize cure of the disease and quality of life. In addition, microvascular reconstructive techniques are used when appropriate to achieve the goals of optimizing function and form.
