Interest in helping others

The field of cancer is very exciting In terms of new developments and treatments. The biology, the science and genes are all important aspects. This interest as well as genuinely wanting to help others beat this disease made me decide to go into oncology.

More than just a patient

Patient-Doctor interaction is very important, and giving quality care to those in need is very rewarding. The patients need access, expertise, compassion and to know that the people treating them really do care. We really want to help you get better and make this experience as comfortable as possible.

Wide range of treatment options

We are the first practice in nine years that was asked to join the Cancer Center Alliance at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. This allows us to bring clinical trials to our patients, and gives them more opportunities to participate. Clinical trials are a very important part of advancing the science of cancer management.
