About this doctor:

After residency, I spent time on the faculty at MD Anderson Cancer Center treating hematologic malignancies (leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma). I have considerable experience treating this patient population. Because many lymphomas are highly curable, management of long term side effects from treatment is essential. I have used many different treatment techniques and modalities to minimize radiation dose to normal structures, thereby minimizing late effects from treatment. I also have a great deal of experience working with cutaneous lymphomas and the management of this category of lymphomas.
