"I believe in high-quality evidence- based care with the incorporation of the newest/most advanced technology. It is also very important to me to always have the patient's best interest in mind."
I earned my medical degree from Faculdade de Ciencias Medicas Universidade Estadual de Campinas in Brazil. I also have a Master of Science degree in infectious disease from Escola Paulista de Medicina in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I completed a residency in infectious diseases at the Hospital do Servidor Publico Estadual in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I also completed a residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in hematology and oncology through the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City.
I am board certified in internal medicine, medical oncology and hematology. I have staff privileges at Aurora Medical Center in Summit.
My special interests are in benign hematology, leukemia, lymphoma, lung cancer, breast cancer and general oncology.
Away from the clinic, I enjoy spending time with my wife and children, downhill skiing, cycling, hiking, playing tennis and traveling.
