Get to Know Your Radiologist

Q: What sparked your interest to focus in Diagnostic and Vascular Interventional Radiology?
A: I like the minimally invasive nature, that you can accomplish complex treatments with just a knick in the skin.

Q: What are some of your hobbies outside of the work environment?
