Personal Statement

Prior to specializing in radiology, I also completed residency training and board certification in internal medicine. As a thoracic radiologist, I strive to make use of that clinical experience by interpreting every imaging study within the specific clinical context of each individual patient. I strongly believe that a quality driven and individualized approach in radiology can have a vital impact on patient care.
