My staff and I aim to provide the highest standard of care to all of my patients. I believe it is important for patients to understand the treatment process but to also know all of their options regarding their breast cancer care. As this is a very difficult experience for both the patients and their families, I always strive to provide compassionate care while guiding them through this journey.
