My approach to patient is care is very individualized and patient focused. I recognize all patients have their own beliefs and wishes regarding their care. All my care plans are individualized based on patient's overall health, age, and goals. I am happy to guide patients through the decision making process. I like to explore options then choose what we both think is the best option.
I want to be someone you can trust and rely on. There is no reason for me to be anything but completely honest with you. I will be there for you during your illness, so there is no reason to make promises I cannot keep. I am always available to see you in the office if you are having problems.
Finally, I want to cure you of your cancer. I am willing to be creative and do everything possible to cure cancer. This may involve not just chemotherapy, but radiation, cyberknife, surgery, ablative procedures, interventional radiology, clinical research trials, and second opinions.
