“Compassion, honesty, and partnership are the foundations of the care I provide for my patients.  It is a privilege to partner with a patient and their loved ones during one of the toughest times of their lives.  We work together to identify each patient’s personal treatment goals, and use state of the art treatments, including exploring clinical trial options.”

I am a board certified medical oncologist, with subspecialty expertise in the treatment of Head & Neck cancers as well as GI cancers. I am also board certified in Hospice & Palliative Medicine. My family has been deeply affected by cancer. I am committed to clinical research, with a special interest in targeted therapies, such as immune checkpoint inhibitor immunotherapies for patients with Head & Neck cancers.  I am also committed to medical education as well. I serve as the Medical Oncology faculty for the Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center Head & Neck Surgical Oncology Fellowship Program and am a guest lecturer at Creighton University School of Medicine.

I am married to author Lydia Kang, and we have three children and two dogs, Piper and Sawyer. In my spare time, I am learning how to repair vintage watches, I bake sourdough bread, and play tennis.
