Philosophy

Compassion is an integral part of cancer care. It’s important that I take the time to listen and understand my patient’s goals. My aim is to educate and inform patients and their families about the disease so we can make a shared decision and tailor treatment according to each individual patient’s needs.

Personal

When not at work, Dr. Rafiyath spends his time with his wife and three kids. They love to travel and visit family members abroad. They also play sports, particularly badminton. Both Dr. Rafiyath and his wife are active in community, especially in social services, with the hope of helping those in need.
