I am currently the Medical Director of Lake Norman Radiation Oncology Center, and enjoy living in the community where I work. While I treat all cancers, I have a particular interest and expertise in treating prostate cancer with brachytherapy – the placement of radioactive seeds within the prostate. When I’m not in the office, I spend time with my wife and three daughters, and enjoy golfing, skiing, reading and traveling.
