Meet your Doctor
What led you to become a doctor or choose your focus of medicine?
Cancer has touched us all in one way or another. I am very passionate about helping patients in the fight against cancer.
What about your line of work do you find most rewarding and why?
Getting to know my patients and getting to be with them on their journey. As a physician I am able to help them through this time and make a difference.
How would a patient describe you?
Soft-spoken, conscientious and dynamic.
What’s your proudest moment as a doctor?
So many moments come to mind— when you can tell your patient they are in remission, showing the CT scan with no tumor or just the moment when I hold my patient’s hand to be there for them.
In your opinion, what’s the most important factor in a doctor-patient relationship?
Trust and respect.
What can a patient expect when they have you as a doctor?
I will listen, empathize and go the extra mile to provide the best possible care.
What do you find most encouraging about the work you do?
The development of new therapies is fascinating right now in the oncology field.
What are your top priorities with every patient you see?
To get to know each of my patients. Cancer is only a part of their story, and I treat the whole patient.
