Biography


I am a medical oncologist specializing in prostate cancer. My expertise encompasses the full range of prostate cancer care, from prevention and screening to active surveillance, clinically localized disease and advanced metastatic disease. My goal is to provide each patient with the best in clinical care that is distinguished by research. This effort is the result of seamless interactions among specialized physicians in oncology, urology, pathology and radiation therapy so that our care programs are personalized for each individual.

We are very proud to offer a weekly Prostate Cancer Multidisciplinary Clinic where men with a newly diagnosed prostate cancer can receive a comprehensive evaluation and detailed review of treatment options in one afternoon visit. State-of-the-art treatment plans ranging from surgery to radiation therapy to medical oncology, as well as integrated combinations, are offered to ensure the greatest chance of cure and quality survivorship.

Our team provides opportunities for men to participate in novel and exciting clinical trials in such areas as nutrition, cancer prevention survivorship and therapeutics, including those involving new combinations of pharmaceuticals and radiation, immune therapeutics and targeted agents.

We have established a Prostate Cancer Genetics Clinic to better serve our patients and their families. Rapidly expanding knowledge has clarified a role for inheritance in prostate cancer risk, and we provide an integrated evaluation by certified specialists in genetics counseling. Our evaluation of the family history includes options for genetic analysis to the patient and appropriate family members, such as siblings and descendants (both men and women), as some inherited syndromes relate to risks of cancers other than prostate cancer.

I serve the National Cancer Institute-designated Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center as leader of the Molecular Carcinogenesis and Chemoprevention Program, one of our five programs dedicated to basic and translational research leading to innovative prevention and therapeutic strategies for cancer. I also am privileged to serve as co-director of Ohio State’s Foods for Health Discovery Theme, a campus-wide effort in food, nutrition and health. In addition, I am honored to serve the National Institutes of Health-U.S. Department of Agriculture (NIH-USDA) initiative to define Dietary Guidelines for America 2015-2020 and the World Cancer Research Fund effort to define guidelines for cancer prevention that are employed by many organizations, such as the World Health Organization, to impact healthy food and agriculture policies for nations around the globe.

As a medical scientist, I have a vigorous research laboratory dedicated to prostate cancer prevention and therapy, as well as projects focusing on diet, nutrition and lifestyle for cancer prevention and survivorship. Additionally, I was named to the Castle Connolly list of “America's Top Doctors” from 2008-2018 and rated in the top 10 percent of physicians in the nation for patient satisfaction in 2016 and 2017.
