Philosophy of Care

“My practice is based on creating a supportive partnership by respecting individual health values, traditions and personal wellness goals while offering best evidence-based medical care options. In my years of managing complex health conditions, I have learned health meaning and preferences evolve over time. I believe it is important to listen, monitor and acknowledge these dynamic preferences and choices. It is truly an honor to provide guidance, comprehensive education, treatments and advocacy to persons facing elevated cancer health risk."
