PERSONAL THOUGHTS ON PATIENT CARE
Cancer affects every one of us. I believe in treating the patient as if we are treating our own family members. As a physician, it is our duty to give the best and most up–to–date advice to our patients. I encourage academic discussion and the sharing of the latest research among physicians to improve the lives of our patients. We are well trained in treating diseases; but the overall care of the patient as a whole comes first.
