Why do you specialize in oncology?
Specialties and clinical expertise
The branch of medicine a provider practices and their areas of focus
I am a board-certified radiation oncologist and the medical director of SCCA Peninsula, a radiation oncology clinic located in Poulsbo, Washington. In this community setting, I practice general radiation oncology with a special interest in breast cancer, head and neck cancers, skin cancer and palliative care.
My background includes serving as the principal investigator on the groundbreaking early trial of stereotactic radiotherapy for prostate cancer. Today, stereotactic radiotherapy, a type of focused external beam radiation therapy that precisely targets cancer cells, has become a widely accepted treatment for a variety of tumors.
