Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Matar "Although many cancers are common, each patient is unique. Thus patients in this practice are given individual attention. A diagnosis of cancer affects not only physical health, but also many other aspects of a person's life. Care must be delivered considering the entirety of the person. I seek to know each individual as both a patient and a neighbor, treating them as I would like to be treated."

Patient Comments (1)
Lexington, KY |
Dr. Matar is terrific. She is very thorough in explaining what will happen during radiation. She was well researched on my case and demonstrated a true concern for my immediate past treatments and moving forward to radiation as soon as I was physically ready. She has a super bed-side manner and is very attentive to my comfort level throughout my care path. She is leading the charge for a new/innovative approach to radiation, which is specifically suitable for me. For that, I am very thankful.
