I believe that a team based approach to caring for patients improves patient outcomes. All members of the physician-led team, patient's family members and caregivers play a vital role in providing patient care. A goal of mine has been to bring medical information about common malignancies to the public in a way that is accessible and useful, with the ultimate goal of reducing risk for cancer and making early diagnosis possible.
