Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Peters "I am a neurologist and cancer doctor who treats brain tumors and researches ways to improve quality of life for brain tumor patients. As a college student I thought I was going to be a scientist but fell in love with studying the brain and its inner workings. I enjoy being at Duke because I work with some of the top clinicians and researchers in the field and a generous and warm-hearted staff that helps patients and their loved ones through treatment. It is hard to pick one thing I enjoy about my job. I enjoy seeing patients and their loved ones being at the cutting edge of research and teaching the next generation of doctors. I think it is the chance to do so many different things that makes my job special. Outside of work I enjoy shopping at farmers markets cooking and exercising. I also collect Swatch watchesI have over 400!"
