Dr. Drake's Care Philosophy

As a gynecologic oncologist, I practice medicine how I would like to be treated - with compassion, understanding, and comfort for getting through this difficult diagnosis. By using the latest advances in medicine (both surgically and with chemotherapy), I can help to combat their gyn cancers aggressively to help them continue their lives. Through Texas Oncology, I can offer clinical trials, minimally invasive surgery, and the latest therapies to help eradicate most gyn malignancies.
