Personal Statement

I believe in the "family standard" when caring for my patients - I seek to do for my patients what I would want done (or not done) for my own family member in that same situation. I am honored and humbled by the trust cancer patients place in me and the team of caregivers at our institution and constantly strive to see that all receive appropriate, compassionate, leading edge care.
