Patient Care Philosophy
It is important to integrate research advances into the care of patients. Oncology is a rapidly evolving discipline. Novel approaches to the diagnosis and management of cancer have resulted in remarkable improvements in the last several years. Malignancies for which there had been no good treatments and dismal prognoses can now often be rendered chronic and sometimes cured. I feel that patients should have access to state-of-the-art treatments and have access to clinical trials that may offer even better outcomes.
