Research and Clinical Interests
My clinical activities encompass diagnostic cytopathology, including performance and interpretation of fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsies, incorporating ultrasound guidance as needed. I also sign-out general surgical pathology cases. I am particularly interested in cytology/surgical pathology correlation.
