Care Philosophy

It is my goal to optimize the quality of life for my patients and their loved ones, helping them cope with the challenges brought by cancer. I value open communication, mutual respect and patient autonomy. I understand that every patient has unique needs, and I tailor practice decisions to individual patients in whatever ways possible.
