Patient Care Philosophy:
I have had the opportunity to care for diverse patient populations from different socioeconomic backgrounds with variety of diseases. I understand the importance of not only providing the best medical care possible, but also one that is most suitable for an individual patient. Battling illnesses such as cancer can be very difficult and challenging for patients and their families. My goal is to support them in their life journey as they cope with their illnesses, improve their quality of life and reduce their burden of disease, and respect their autonomy and dignity through effective communication and education.
