    Philosophy of Care

    The intellectual challenge of oncology and blood diseases initially drew me to this specialty. However, what has sustained me in this field is observing the amazing strength of my patients as they go through the treatment journey.


    Cancer treatment is constantly changing as we learn more about the biology of the diseases and identify new ways of treating them. My passion is melding science with a clinical care approach that is most effective for each individual.


    I believe in open communication with patients, and giving them the all the available clinical knowledge. This empowers them to make the best decision for their care. It is humbling to guide patients through a very difficult phase in their lives. It is also rewarding to fulfill this responsibility by providing the best possible care for the patients and their loved ones.
