Patient Care Philosophy
I was drawn to the field of hematology and oncology because of the longitudinal relationships one develops with patients and families. Additionally, the rapidly evolving research and novel treatment discoveries for patients living with cancer has led to more tolerable and targeted therapies, improving survival and quality of life.
I’m privileged to take care of patients during their cancer journey and establish deep connections with them and their families. I listen carefully and take a collaborative decision-making approach, working tirelessly to meet the needs of my patients and their goals for their recovery.
