Care Philosophy

I care for individuals with complex devastating diseases. I believe all patients with complex problems should have the opportunity to meet multiple specialized physicians in a single visit.This enables patients to be evaluated and treated appropriately during this frightening and stressful time. I, along with my multidisciplinary team, will see any patient with a new cancer diagnosis within one week. Our goal is to to deliver care that we would want our own families to receive.
