Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shrager "Competence and compassion are the essential components of the care that I provide. For patients dealing with cancer, I coordinate a "multidisciplinary plan" combining state-of-the-art techniques from multiple specialists. In addition to my surgery, this may include gastroenterology procedures, radiation therapy, and hormone-based treatments. I am skilled at presenting these ideas to my patients in terms that they can understand."
