Care Philosophy

It's my job to continuously educate the patient and family about the cancer and the side effects. The care of patients with cancer is a great responsibility requiring humility, honesty and wisdom. After 35 years of treating patients I still find each patient and their cancer to be a special challenge and responsibility. I look forward to treating each patient I see as I would want myself our a family member treated.
