Care Philosophy

After developing an interest in fighting cancer in medical school, I was fortunate to work with and learn from leadersin the field of genitourinary oncology during internship, residency, and fellowship training. I feel fortunate to have joined the faculty at Weill Cornell to work with renowned mentors and colleagues in both medical oncology and urology. Together I am confident we will make progress towards increasing the cure rate and decreasing suffering from these diseases.

Bedford, NY |
My husband is a patient of Dr. Tagawa. He is a compassionate and brilliant physician who brings his knowledge and caring together with the patient and his family to formulate a comprehensive treatment plan all while dealing with very serious health issues. I feel complete comfort in bringing up any issue or question from side effects to new options that I read about - I totally trust Dr. Tagawa's judgment with my husband's cancer care and am grateful for his hope and expertise.

I have been a patient for over 5 years and find the Doctor to be informative, thorough and concerned. As a patient who says undergone salvage therapy I receive all information I need and am not bombarded with so start study requests. I am confident in my treatment.
