About me

As a medical oncologist, my clinical interests are in clinical/translational research in cancers of the digestive system. Our gastrointestinal (GI) oncology team has launched investigator-initiated clinical trials that directly evolved from preclinical observations in the laboratory. We established a highly collaborative basic, translational and clinical research infrastructure at OHSU that is critical for the success of multidisciplinary GI oncology research. My basic and clinical research efforts have allowed me to serve as a key bridge between my clinician colleagues and my basic science colleagues. From this perspective, we have been able to assemble an outstanding team of multidisciplinary investigators that will focus on novel approaches to treating GI cancers.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
