Philosophy of Care

My philosophy of patient care is to employ the most up to date clinical medicine and technology to provide the best outcomes for my patients. Whenever possible, this outcome is to cure patients of their cancer; when a cure is not possible, I focus this outcome on palliation for the highest quality of life. Each patient is an individual, and I see my patients as partners in each step of the process, from determining goals of care, to receiving their treatment, to long term follow up.
