Philosophy

I believe that being an oncologist is a privilege that is not to be taken lightly. I strive to provide, evidence based care that is appropriate to my patients particular problem, recognizing and respecting individual patient’s wishes. I take a multidisciplinary approach to care including alternative therapies that have been shown to be effective.
