Overall Patient Satisfaction Rating

4.9 out of 5




I am a radiation oncologist and the Vice Chair of Clinical Operations for the Department of Radiation Oncology. I was named to the Castle Connolly list of “Regional Top Doctors” from 2014-2019.

I spent 20 years in the U.S. Navy and retired from the Navy Reserve in 2007 at the rank of Captain in the Medical Corps. I believe strongly in the mission of the OSUCCC – James to bring about a cancer-free world through cutting-edge research and delivering highly individualized, caring treatment of all our patients.

Much of my clinical work is in treating genitourinary cancers and gynecologic cancers. I have extensive experience in performing brachytherapy procedures for both men with prostate cancer and women with advanced gynecologic cancers. I have extensive experience in performing brachytherapy procedures for both men with prostate cancer and women with advanced gynecologic cancers (cervical, endometrial, vulvar or vaginal cancer). I also have significant experience in delivering image guided external beam radiation therapy with implanted markers or Calypso Beacons, a technology that tracks the tumor during treatment delivery.

In addition to my clinical interests, I am very active in several roles working to improve the quality and safety of medical care delivery. I am currently the chair of the Ohio State University Radiation Safety committee, serve on several medical center committees that oversee credentialing and quality and safety measures. Nationally, I was the chair of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Practice Accreditation Committee developing guidelines and evaluating radiation oncology departments across the country. I am now the vice chair of the ASTRO Clinical Affairs and Quality Committee.

I am honored to be able to work at The James and collaborate with our amazing staff and faculty.
