Mission statement: “I believe that truly great cancer is care is about much more than just choosing the right chemotherapy regimen. I want to understand my patients’ goals and wishes so that together we can develop a treatment plan that aligns with those goals. Providing relief from the pain, symptoms, and stress caused by the cancer is just as important as treating the cancer itself.
