Patient Care Philosophy
I feel fortunate I am able to devote my passion and knowledge to the care of cancer patients. I will apply the most updated evidence to the care of my patients. I will treat my patients holistically by not only addressing their physical complaints, but also working to help them through their emotional and spiritual challenges.
