About Susan

Driven by Improving Patient Outcomes

It is a privilege for me to work with an exceptional group of physicians and co-workers in such a dynamic environment. We are very fortunate to have the Gamma Knife ICON. The ability to treat patients with the gold standard technology is imperative in today’s healthcare setting, giving patients better outcomes and a better quality of life. The reward is making their difficult journey a little bit easier, and the thank you from the patient and their families makes it all worthwhile.
