"I believe that patients are active participants in their own care. To make that easier, I spend a lot of time teaching patients about their disease, explaining their options and answering questions."
I earned my medical degree from Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago, Ill. I completed my residency at the University of Minnesota Hospitals in Minneapolis and my fellowship at the University of Rochester in New York.
I am board certified in internal medicine, medical oncology and hematology with staff privileges at Aurora Medical Center in Grafton, Aurora Medical Center in Washington County, Aurora Sinai Medical Center and Aurora St. Luke's Medical Center.
My special interests include breast cancer, lymphoma and myeloma (including related disorders, such as amyloidosis and Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia) and also benign hematology. I'm involved in the education of residents and students in the Aurora Teaching Program.
I am fortunate to have a wonderful wife, two married daughters, and grandchildren. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, photography and grilling (all year round).
