“The diagnosis of cancer not only affects the patient on an individual basis, but also deeply impacts the lives of many around that person, including family and friends. Having experienced this dynamic from the other side of the table while caring for loved ones having to deal with this menace, I make it my life’s biggest goal to work as a team in order to care for my patients and their loved ones. My untiring and relentless desire to make a positive difference in my patients’ lives is what drives me to be proactive in my profession on a daily basis. I am my patients’ number one advocate and make sure to provide them with the latest and state-of-the-art treatments at my disposal here at The Center in order to provide them with the best chance at beating cancer. The thing that I tell my patients most often is: We are in this TOGETHER!”
