“I wanted to specialize in oncology because it is an opportunity to combine state-of-the-art medical care with the empathy and compassion that are central to truly helping people… and that you and your loved ones deserve. Through my 10+ years as a cancer specialist, there have been significant changes in oncology, and now I’m able to offer better treatments with fewer side effects. The product of these changes, for me, is the fulfillment that comes with seeing more and more patients cured of their cancer or living longer, higher-quality lives with the people they love.”
