As a doctor who treats cancer, I strive to understand how my patients’ lives are affected by their illness. Doing so helps me address my patient’s medical needs and expectations to offer the best care possible. I strive to deliver care to my patients with respect, compassion, and empathy. I am privileged to be in a position to help cancer patients and their families live full lives despite this life-changing diagnosis.
