Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Braiteh "I do not treat cancer, I treat patients with cancer emphasizing the role of the body, mind and complex organs and systems involved in control of the disease, and the impact of treatment on those systems. My goal is to prevent diseases and complications, alleviate pain, avoid unnecessary suffering, and always improve quality of life, a life to be longer, prosperous and enjoyable."
