What I Love About My Job

“I can truly say I have the best job in the world because every day I am able to stand with my patients as they undergo the fight of their lives. As an oncologist, I have to understand the intricacies of cancer, and as a person, I want to understand the core values of my patients, so that I can incorporate all of these details into a personalized treatment plan. I believe in open dialogue between doctor and patient so that we can tackle any obstacle, big or small, that comes our way. I encourage family and loved ones to become a part of the team and join us in the journey to cure. Cancer care is continuously advancing and I love staying on the forefront of the wave so that I know I am always offering my patients the best and most effective treatment. “
