I manage all aspects of cancer care and the treatment of hematologic (blood) disorders. I educate my patients about their condition, establish goals of treatment and formulate a treatment plan using best clinical practices, the latest scientific knowledge and state-of-the-art technology. I use the latest techniques and clinical trial data to make treatment decisions, placing special emphasis on side effect prevention. My goal is to provide personalized, patient-centered, compassionate care to cancer patients and their families.
I provide treatment for breast, lung and gastrointestinal cancers, general oncology as well as benign and malignant hematology.
I earned my medical degree at The Aga Khan University Medical College in Pakistan. I completed both my residency in Internal Medicine and fellowship in Hematology/Oncology at West Virginia University in Morgantown. I hold a Master of Science degree in Clinical and Translational Science from the Medical College of Wisconsin. I am board certified in Internal Medicine, Hematology and Medical Oncology by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
I bring a blend of experience from academic medicine and a community oncology practice of several years. I am passionate about clinical trials and the opportunities they present for my patients. I have received national recognition by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) for accruing patients to clinical trials since the Aurora Research Institute received its initial NCORP grant in 2014.
