Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Stark-Vance "Do you want to see an oncologist? Of course not! Oncologists specialize in the treatment of cancer, which is a frightening and often deadly disease. Although there are definite risk factors for cancer, for many people the diagnosis of cancer is not something which could have been anticipated or prevented. But my commitment to you is that I will be honest with you about your disease and your treatment options, and work with you to find the best option for you."
