Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Richards "I chose to become an oncologist because I found the field of oncology to be constantly evolving, changing with the development of new therapies, and rewarding in its care of the whole patient. After nearly 30 years in practice, I still feel the same way. And to be effective, in my experience, depends on always being compassionate and thoughtful… and focused on giving the person in my care the sense that there is always hope. We have appropriate treatment options for every step in your or your loved one's cancer journey. And you'll always have me by your side."
