Care Philosophy

Cancer is an illness that can be defeated and tamed. My long experience in oncology has taught me that people have different goals and priorities in life; the optimal cancer treatment needs to be individualized to match the personal goals of each patient, and this may not necessarily be the goal of the physician. Understanding my patient's goals and wishes is very important to me.
