Specialties and clinical expertise
The branch of medicine a provider practices and their areas of focus
I am the medical director of SCCA Issaquah and a board-certified medical oncologist with more than 17 years of experience in cancer care. Prior to joining SCCA, I served as the director of hematology-oncology research at The Everett Clinic and was on active duty in the U.S. Navy. In addition to caring for patients with a variety of cancers, I lead clinical trials to advance our understanding of how to best treat breast cancer and lung cancer. My expertise extends to immunotherapy, which uses the body’s own immune system to fight cancer, and the development of cancer vaccines.
