Clinical Interests:



“Taking care of people and helping them is time well-spent. I believe in developing a close relationship with people who are facing cancer, because it’s essential to their care and quality of life. It’s important that they’re comfortable with and confident in their customized treatment plan. And it’s just as important for them to know that they can confide in me. My goal is to give everyone in my care my time, my focus and the satisfaction that they’re getting the best treatment that’s possible. There are no shortcuts. It takes heart… and commitment. ”
