I chose to work at Fox Chase because I like oncologic (cancer) pathology and love the institutional environment. The best part of my job is interaction with other colleagues: pathologists, clinicians and researchers. That is why I've stayed at Fox Chase for more than 15 years.
Advances in medicine have improved the way in which we understand cancer and deal with it. An accurate, comprehensive diagnosis means everything to the patients who come here as well as the physicians who plan their treatment. As a pathologist, I enjoy working with the other physicians because they count on our accuracy in order to get best results in cancer management and for future progress in the field.
