Care Philosophy

We live in a time of great hope in the area of cancer therapy. Many new, important and life-changing treatments are now being developed. As one of only 45 National Cancer Institute-designated

centers in the United States, Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center is privileged to offer patients tomorrow's treatments today. With this progress in mind, I strive to offer all my patients the best possible therapies for their diseases, always mindful that I am neither treating a disease nor a patient, but a person with a life, a family and a combination of hopes and fears.

Working at a great cancer center like this gives me the opportunity to collaborate with leading international experts to assure that my patients can benefit from the best possible care during the course of their journeys.
