My interest in medicine started at a young age.  I underwent surgery due to recurrent illness, which led to a significant change in my health.  This fostered an ongoing curiosity in the field of medicine that only strengthened as I grew older.

I majored in biology at Siena College, which helped solidify my desire to become a physician.  I also had the opportunity to shadow physicians from various specialties.  This experience led me to seeking out a position as a nurses aide, which was invaluable to my eventual role as a physician.  As an aide, I  was given a unique insight into the necessity of each team member in facilitating positive outcomes for each patient.

When I entered medical school I did not have a specific speciality in mind.  I figured my studies would lead me there.  Surprisingly enough, the decision ended up becoming much more personal for me.  The decision to choose a career treating hematology and oncology patients arose from an exposure to that world in my own private life.  It was a difficult path but one that inspired me.  I realized the importance of compassion, guidance and professionalism that is required in such a difficult situation by a care provider.

I went on to complete both my Residency and Fellowship training at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, PA.  My mentors provided me with a wealth of knowledge and an extraordinary learning experience, for which I am extremely grateful.  Treating cancer patients has been extremely rewarding, while at times, challenging.  I strive to be a physician who can identify with patients on a more personal level, as I can often relate.  I know how vital it is to involve each patient and his/her family in the plan of care; oftentimes this approach is most effective in achieving positive outcomes, as the plan is individualized for each unique situation.

Research, including some projects I have been involved with, both at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and also with Penn State, has shown that the hematology/oncology fields are exciting, ever-evolving disciplines with the promise of ongoing medical break throughs.  My experiences, both personal and professional, have provided me with a strong desire to make an impact in the oncologic field by working closely with patients and their families to obtain the best possible outcomes.  I feel that HOA holds this ideal as well, providing excellent, advanced, integrated care and I am honored to work for such a distinguished practice. 

My wife, Katie and I couldn't be happier to be living in the Syracuse region with our two young boys.  We are enjoying this beautiful area and are thrilled to have our kids grow up in such a family-oriented, friendly place.  Outside of work I like to spend time with my family.  I enjoy skiing, golfing, running and drawing…. when the little guys give me a chance.
