• My primary expertise is in the area of skin cancer. My work has concentrated in this area since 1998. I am skilled at presenting patients with the latest evidence-based treatments and at guiding them to the option that suits them best. I am also knowledgeable about specific issues that skin cancer patients face and am well versed at informing patients of these and helping them deal with them
