Patient Care Philosophy
“I became a doctor and specialized in oncology because I like to take care of people at a difficult and transitional time in their lives. My approach is not only to address a patient’s physical health, but also to take care of their mental, emotional, and spiritual health. I believe that advances in technology and medical therapeutics coupled with a sense of compassion and social justice will improve the quality of life of patients afflicted with cancer and will hopefully eradicate this disease.”
