Having a diagnosis of head and neck cancer is incredibly overwhelming for our patients and their families. I have the luxury of working within an amazing Clinical Cancer Center here at Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin with wonderfully supportive and helpful staff that help make each individual patient’s experience as efficient, convenient, and comforting as possible. I personally strive to provide each of my patients and their families with every treatment option available, and aim to assist them in making the very difficult decisions that exist in this current day and age of complex treatments. I treat each patient as an individual, not as a disease process, and focus on both the physical and the psychosocial needs of my patients. Our multidisciplinary team of providers and staff help provide patients with the best oncologic and functional outcomes, and are always available for additional support when needed.
