I believe that cancer patients are in the most vulnerable situation. They have to face many uncertainties, loaded with many questions and burdened with ongoing fears, not only related to their disease, but also related to their loved ones. It truly takes a village to treat a someone diagnosed with cancer. The field of oncology is humbling and teaches us all about humanity. We are not immortal, and we are merely human beings. For me, it is such an honor and privilege to get to know my patients and for them to open up to me. My goal is to compassionately provide my patients with the best medical recommendations and treatment plans tailored to their individual needs. I want to help guide them through their journey.
