Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Malone "The better we understand cancer the more we recognize the complexities of this disease. Just like people, each cancer is different. Every cancer has a unique cause and unique genetic profile. We recognize that each patient will require a distinct approach & a tailored treatment plan geared toward their individual situation. We believe that the optimal outcome for cancer patients comes from the coordinated efforts of a team of expert practitioners using a multi-faceted treatment approach."

Dr. Malone treated me in 2013 for Hodgkins Lymphoma. This was not my first time fighting it. He is by far the best oncologist that I have had in my battles against cancer. He is a great listener and really helps you to understand what is going on and what the plan of action is.
