“I am grateful to help people through this challenging endeavor in their lives. I believe you should view me not only as your care practitioner, but also as a friend. This includes getting to know you beyond your cancer, which builds a lifelong rapport and allows for better understanding of your needs and values. In addition to providing the best possible care, it is my hope that I can enable and engage you to be a more active participant in your disease management. By taking an increasingly active role, you become better educated and have the tools necessary to make critical decisions in a collaborative manner.”
