Clinical Information

I am trained as a subspecialty head and neck pathologist, with the vast majority of my service work in this area. I have developed particular expertise in squamous cell carcinomas, particularly variants as well as those arising in the oropharynx and sinonasal tracts.

Our clinical service covers head and neck pathology including sinonasal and skull based lesions, oral, pharyngeal, laryngeal, and lip lesions, as well as salivary gland, neck, thyroid, and parathyroid gland pathology. It is diverse and complicated. We provide dedicated subspecialty expertise and rapid turnaround time. In addition, questions or consultations related to HPV testing of head and neck cancers welcomed. We have in house high risk HPV mRNA in situ hybridization available.
