SpecialtiesOncologist - Cancer
BioMy father, who was a neurosurgeon, instilled in me the responsibility of taking care of others and the satisfaction that came with restoring their health.
He subsequently died of cancer but I always knew I wanted to be a surgeon. My current specialty allows me to use the talents I have to make a difference through the surgical treatment of Gynecologic Cancers. In some way, I feel I am giving back to those affected with the disease that killed my father. The patients I have the opportunity to work with, are extraordinary, as are the exceptional physicians and staff of Alabama Oncology. It is a real privilege to work in a setting that offers such a sophisticated level of clinical care.
