I see adult patients with blood disorders and cancers of all types. My areas of focus include cancers of the lung, head and neck, as well as tumors of the central nervous system.

I am committed to helping patients and their families make the best possible treatment decisions. As part of a comprehensive medical team, I work in tandem with my patients and other healthcare providers to broaden options for care when possible and explore the benefits of hospice and end-of-life decisions when necessary. I am passionate about finding ways to relieve suffering and helping my patients find hope.

To bring my patients the benefit of new, state-of-the-art treatments, I am actively involved in multidisciplinary tumor board conferences, advisory boards for lung cancer, head and neck cancer, and hospice, as well as clinical research trials through Novant Health. My work with other physicians in the community has led to recognition on the Top Doctors in Charlotte by Charlotte Magazine.

I have lived in the Matthews area since 2004 and am the proud father of two girls. My hobbies include spending time with my family, traveling, hiking, playing guitar and practicing meditation.
