Using Past Experience To Help Others
I had a personal family experience. I lost my father to cancer and I was involved with all aspects. There are many integrated rolls and I was impressed by the level of care he got and how integral every piece was. I learned very quickly about the continuity of care and how important the relations you build with the patients are.
We Want To Know Your Story
Obviously, they 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.
Expanding Our Care
We would like to reach more patients. We have a talented team, facility, equipment, and drugs to do so. People are living much longer so that means more patients. We look work forward to expanding and providing the best care.
