Being diagnosed with cancer is a life-changing event, affecting both patients and their families. No one should walk this path alone. It is my honor and privilege to accompany my patients on their cancer journey, and to become a part of their lives in a very special way.
In my clinical practice, I focus on the care of patients with breast cancer. I strive to provide expert, prompt, individualized and compassionate care for every patient and family. My philosophy in taking care of patients is, first of all, to listen to them and keep in very close communication throughout the course of treatment. We work together as a team. I help my patient in understanding their diagnosis, and together we design the best plan of action. By working with each patient, their family, and a group of my expert colleagues (surgeons, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists), we can design the most comprehensive treatment plan, that could include both standard treatments and emerging therapies in the form of clinical trials.
We live in an exciting time of many outstanding scientific discoveries in cancer diagnostics and therapy. My goal is to bring together all the scientific advances and resources of a cutting-edge cancer center to my patients.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading books and being outdoors. I love skiing, hiking, biking and backpacking with my husband and three children.
