Philosophy:

“Compassion really is the central ingredient in providing optimal care for cancer. I’m here to help people and families deal with cancer, its complications and its treatment. Cancer is a very frightening diagnosis for most, and I see my role as one of guide and advocate. Besides aiming to provide the most advanced, appropriate and effective care possible, I’m here to explain the nature and scope of your care — diagnosis, expectations, treatment options, goals for treatment. I see myself as a partner in doing what will be best for you, and genuine compassion and dedication are the reasons.”
