Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tagawa "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."
