Care Philosophy

I believe the best cancer care is delivered by a team including the patient, family, physicians, and many healthcare members who have a unified goal of doing what’s best for the individual patient physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I treat each patient with honesty, compassion, and patience and hope to empower every woman to be active in their own care while knowing that I will support them along the way.
