Physician Biography

I am an expert in the pathology of endocrine organs including thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands, and head and neck tumors. I have more than 30 years of experience in diagnosing tumors under the microscope, classifying and staging cancers, predicting their behavior and helping surgeons and oncologists determine the best personalized treatment for their patients. I have published nearly 100 articles and written a little over 20 book chapters on this subject. I am a Past-President of the North American Society of Head and Neck Pathology. I was selected and invited to write several chapters in two of the World Health Organization's blue books on Tumors of the Endocrine Organs, and Head & Neck tumors, a series published once every ten years that is the standard text for Classification of Tumors around the world.
