“The diagnosis of a malignancy can be one of the most challenging times for a person, both physiologically and psychologically. This is why I emphasize a holistic approach that not only aims to provide the most recent and cutting edge medical therapy, but also one that stresses the emotional well-being of my patients and their caregivers. I strongly believe in a multidisciplinary approach that utilizes the tremendous resources available here at The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders to ensure my patients have the best quality of life possible. Finally, I want to highlight my commitment to treating my patients as individuals and not just by their diagnosis. It is my great privilege to work with you and your loved ones while we navigate through this difficult time together.”
