I care for my patients in two ways. First, a multidisciplinary treatment approach is essential. Treatment planning involves other specialists including breast surgeons, pathologists, radiation oncologists, as well as nurses, pharmacists, members of our research team, counselors, etc. And second, every treatment plan is individualized according to the specifics of each case and the needs of that patient. It's important that my patients are well cared and also feel well cared for.
