  • Ratings & Comments from Patients

    To ensure our ratings come only from verified patients, we work with Press Ganey, a third-party organization. Press Ganey sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVHN’s behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor’s or advanced practice clinician’s communication skills. Read more about our survey.

Personal
  • Philosophy of Care

    Personalized care starts during my first meeting with a patient and family. That's when I get to know the patient as completely as possible. I want to know about the patient's concerns, values and support system so I can provide care that is specific to him or her.

  • Why I Entered Medicine

    When I was young, I didn't like seeing doctors. It created a lot of anxiety for me. Now that I'm older, I can relate to the way people feel, especially when they're coping with the emotions caused by a serious condition like cancer. My grandmother died of uterine cancer in the 1960s. During her battle, I felt helpless. That is what attracted me to cancer research. Now I see the amazing progress we are making through cancer research.

  • Community & Charity Involvement

    I served on the state board of the American Cancer Society. Today, I take more of a grassroots approach to offer my support. I participate in events, such as 5K runs, that benefit charities.

  • Personal Interests

    I like to jog. I also am an avid college football fan and a Penn State season ticket holder.
