Locations of Practice

Patient Care Philosophy

A diagnosis of cancer rightfully carries much anxiety and feelings of helplessness, but my philosophy is that there is always hope. As a radiation oncologist, my goal is to listen to the individual needs of my patients and use my medical knowledge as well as collaborate with my team of doctors, nurses, social workers, psychologists and the patient to together create a plan that is tailored to that patient’s goals. Much anxiety is derived from feelings of helplessness, and that is why I believe that it is important that the patient be in control every step of the way.
