Philosophy

My ultimate goal is to help patients live longer and lead healthier lives. Quality of life is extremely important.  This can be achieved by using recent advances in precision and individualized medicine as well as immunotherapy which have changed the landscape of cancer treatment tremendously. 

Beside all the new advances in diagnosis and treatment, it is very important to treat the person not the diagnosis. Understanding the goals and values of each patient is an integral part of any treatment plan.
