Biography

Philosophy of Care

A diagnosis of cancer or a blood disorder can be an incredibly challenging, life-changing event in a person’s life. It is my responsibility to guide my patients through a complicated diagnosis by providing clear explanations and offering up to date, evidence-based treatments or clinical trials that are tailored uniquely to each patient at each stage of a diagnosis. I care deeply about my patients and consider it an absolute privilege to walk alongside them and their families in their cancer journey.
