Patient Care Philosophy

My priority has always been to combine the highest standard of care with personal, emotional and compassionate attention to the needs of every cancer patient and to provide the best state-of-the art treatment options. I am a true believer in the power of deep and strong relationship with our patients and their families and I view our mutual understanding, trust in each other and full dedication as the fundamental key to success.
