    Clinical Focus:

    As an attending anatomic pathologist at the Crawford Long campus, I provide clinical services in general surgical pathology, autopsy pathology, and cytopathology. Our large and varied case mix at Crawford Long offers rich opportunities for residents and fellows to experience a busy general pathology service. With more than 10 years of earlier experience in private practice, I am especially interested in practice management, finance, and the evolving pathology marketplace.
