How would you describe your approach to care?

I have always believed that creating a respectful environment with active listening makes for the best care. Knowledge is power, and I am committed to working with patients so they feel heard and have the resources necessary to maintain their quality of life. 

Why should a patient trust Fred Hutch?

We work as a multidisciplinary care team that includes various specialists, and together we come up with the best personalized plan for patients, taking their needs into account.

Provider Background

Area of clinical practice

Lung cancer early detection and prevention

Teaching others about health, wellness and prevention continues to be central to my mission in the care I provide. With lung cancer screening, eligible patients benefit from early detection in hopes of early diagnosis and improved survival. In my experiences, I have witnessed the power of early detection, motivating me to continue my focus in this area as well as in lung cancer care.
