Personal Statement

As a neuropathologist I am committed to treating every surgical specimen I receive with the utmost care and attention.  Patients and their treating physicians rely on an accurate and comprehensive pathology report that often serves as the foundation for devising the most effective treatment strategy.  I am constantly thinking about ways to improve the handling and analysis of surgical specimens with the goal of providing the most clinically meaningful information to patients and their treatment team.
