Care Philosophy

I strive to provide all patients with individualized, innovative, compassionate care in line with individual goals and beliefs of patients. Management of advanced cancer patients should not focus on the application of more and more therapies, but instead should optimally utilize the available therapies to achieve longer and fuller life. Unlike many other health conditions, cancer has a profound effect on the patient and their family. Of all diseases, cancer therapy needs a lot of compassion, understanding and constant research.
