Clinical Interest for Patients
Interventional oncology: yttrium90, TACE, ablation Portal interventions: TIPS, BRTO Dialysis access interventions Women’s health: uterine fibroid embolization
Making decisions in the setting of an illness can be challenging, even overwhelming for a number of reasons. My approach as a care provider is to champion the patient's cause; to encourage, to clarify, to steer with a combination of best-practice knowledge and collaborative decision making. The best outcomes occur when the patient, family and physicians work together.

Research Interests for Patients
I study how patients do with the care they receive in the real world. My research focuses on both the cost and clinical outcomes of procedures and designing solutions to optimize care at the population health level.
