Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences
Assistant Professor (HS)
Anatomic Pathology; Cytopathology; Surgical Pathology
After earning my Bachelor’s degree, I completed my residency in anatomic and clinical pathology followed by fellowship training in oncologic surgical pathology and cytopathology. I thoroughly enjoy the practice of this specialty, which I chose due to longstanding interest in oncologic disorders as well as ample opportunity for clinical interaction and correlation.
During the course of my training I have gained extensive experience in frozen section interpretations, rapid on-site cytology evaluations, fine needle aspiration biopsy and diagnosis of complex surgical pathology, gynecologic and non-gynecologic exfoliative cytopathology cases through in-house and outside consultations. I have actively participated in patient care through daily exchanges with physicians, oncologists and surgeons and in weekly multidisciplinary conferences (tumor boards), taught residents and also participated in research.
My interests in pathology are broad and diverse. Being trained at a Roswell Park Cancer Institute my main focus has been on neoplastic diseases. As a fellow, I became very familiar with specialized pathology of tumors and cancer-related conditions.
My clinical responsibilities are primarily in anatomic pathology including general surgical pathology and cytopathology. As a well-trained board certified anatomic and clinical pathologist I look forward to provide high quality clinical service to the patients as well as participate in research as I believe is the most important way to help us keep practicing up-to-date medicine and improve our clinical practice.
