Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rajasekaran "The welfare of my patients is my first priority.  Each patient gets my undivided attention.   I believe in a thorough discussion about the diagnosis and treatment options with my patients and their caregivers.  A large part of my practice is head and neck cancer.  I know first-hand how it feels to have a family member have cancer and I use this knowledge to provide the best support I can to my patients. "
