Overall Patient Satisfaction Rating

4.7 out of 5




I’m a gynecologic oncologist specializing in ovarian, uterine, endometrial, cervical and other female cancers. I received my medical training from the University of Western Ontario, and I completed my residency in obstetrics and gynecology at McMaster University. I’ve been named to Woodward White Inc.’s "Best Doctors in America" list since 1992 and was rated in the top 10 percent of physicians in the nation for patient satisfaction in 2016. I was also named to the Castle Connolly list of “America's Top Doctors” from 2000-2019.

I have served in leadership roles in national organizations. In 2006, I served as the president of the Society of Gynecologic Oncology. From 2010–2014, I served as president of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and in 2015, I served as president of the American Gynecological and Obstetrical Society. Since 2017, I have served as president of the GOG Foundation, a group who leads clinical research in patients with gynecological cancers in the United States and networks with global partners.

At the OSUCCC – James, I strive to provide my patients with state-of-the-art treatment. With the cutting-edge technology and research facilities available at The James, I feel I can give them the best individualized care possible. I am proud to be working towards a cancer-free world.

Though this was a rushed surgery due to my situation, i felt the doctor or his nurse could of spent more time looking over my prior test and explaining what to expect after surgery. A couple times he even forgot i had a breast cancer diagnosis priorly, which i felt like if he reviewed my chart better he would of saw. In the end i found out this should have been an emergency surgery and should have probably been done right away. Not blaming the Dr but just feel like if more time was spent or follow up test taken, this would have been caught by someone a bit sooner. Thankfully everything turned out ok with no problems.
