I have always wanted to be a doctor. I love science, biology, and medicine. I started very early exploring these interests by volunteering at University Hospital. By the end of High School I had volunteered for years and knew quite a few people in the hospital, which helped me obtain a job in the Blood Bank. I was trained and by age 18 I was working alone cross-matching blood products. Accuracy in this area is critical as an error can result in serious problems. This responsibility and experience solidified my interest in medicine. I worked in the Blood Bank throughout college, graduating Summa Cum Laude at LeMoyne College.

I then attended medical school. I again enjoyed lab work and spent one summer in the Research lab in the department of Anatomy. By my 3rd year of medical school I was selected as one of only 50 students nationally to have an opportunity to go to the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland where I worked in the Hematology and Clinical Laboratories. These experiences are why I chose the field of Hematology and Medical Oncology.

I have been in practice many years. Most of that time was in a 3-4 doctor practice. More recently my private practice Syracuse Hematology-Oncology Associates integrated with Hematology-Oncology Associates of CNY. I am glad to be a part of this great organization. The ability to provide patient care, laboratory services, radiology, chemotherapy, radiation oncology, plus supportive services such as social work and dietary consults all in one-facility makes this a cutting edge practice. I believe patients appreciate that everything they may need can be done in one location.

Hematology and Medical Oncology remain exciting fields where advances in basic science, genetics, and pharmaceutics help to advance our understanding of disease and treatments, which improve success and cures for our patients.
