I am a fully trained radiation oncologist and can answer many questions about cancer and its treatment. I can't answer questions about specific chemotherapy agents. I have also worked in general medicine and emergency medicine, so I can give advice about these areas as well. I would like to do this based on my very positive experience with one of your experts (real estate).
For the past three years, I have been the Medical Director of Kauai Oncology in Kauai, Hawaii. Prior to that, I was on the staff at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. I completed my residency and fellowship in radiation oncology at Georgetown University's Lombardi Cancer Center in Washington DC. I have done research and given talks on neurooncology (tumors of the nervous system) at national meetings. I have been trained in the use of state-of-the-art technologies such as the CyberKnife. I was emergency physician at a busy community hospital (Calvert Memorial Hospital) in Maryland for 3 years (1989-1991).
