Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kent "I'm a pediatric oncologist. And what that means is I take care of patients who have a pediatric type of cancer, not that I take care of only children. That's an important distinction. If it's a disease - such as sarcoma, leukemia or lymphoma - that is more common in the childhood age group, we have the expertise, and we have the open research protocols, the availability of the best treatments - regardless of your age. Consequently, we take and see patients up to age 40. The moment that I tell a family their child has cancer, they will never forget that moment. So the next thing has to be, And this is how we're gonna beat it. And that time is something that's frozen forever for this family. And we want to make sure that we are able to deliver on that promise."
