Notes

Between 1971-1988, I have been a member (physician)of Clinical Research Division and the Co-Director of Liver Cancer Prevention Center, Fox Chase Cancer Center under the Direction of Dr. Baruch S. Blumberg, the 1976 Nobel Laureate for Discovery of Hepatitis B Virus. My goal is to provide the best care for patients with chronic hepatitis B and liver cancer utilizing the most updated therapy for hepatitis B virus infection to prevent liver cancer.

Personal Statement

To provide the best care possible for each of my patients using current treatment methods. I tailor my care to patients on an individualized basis. One on one contact between the doctor and patient is imperative to a successful healing relationship. This includes discussion of multiple factors that affect the patient's health and educating the patient about the illness. Improving the quality of life is my primary goal.
