Patient satisfaction ratings and reviews are based on personal opinions. Before you choose any doctor you should take into account their background, training, specialized experience AND their patient satisfaction to ensure they are the right fit for you.
As a physician, I strongly believe that we need better and more advanced therapies to treat cancer, but I also feel it is very important to carefully tailor the treatment to the individual patient. There is an increasing array of options for treatment for cancer including chemotherapy, targeted therapies, surgery and radiation and many patients need a combined and coordinated strategy that may include several of these options to achieve the optimal results. We have excellent surgeons and radiation therapists at UC San Diego Healthcare and we work closely as a team to provide the best possible care for our patients.
