Rising up to the challenge
When I was in residency, the whole oncology field was changing. There was a focus on targeted therapy which was more challenging and thought provoking and each patient was a different scenario. After seeing a patient with CML (Chronic Myeloid Leukemia) go into complete remission, I knew I wanted to stay in the oncology field.
Providing you with the best care
Obviously patients, want our medical opinion. But most cancer patients would like empathy and staff that understands them completely. It is easier to treat when you know the whole story. From family to the caregiver, knowing all aspects really makes a difference in the level of care.
Growing to help others
We would like to reach more patients. We have the talented team, facility, equipment and drugs to do so. People are living much longer today than in the past, that means more patients. We look work forward to expanding and providing the best care.
