I believe in a patient-centered view of care for women with cancer. We work together as a team and decide on a plan of care which conforms to the social and cultural needs of the many different patients that come into our practice. I firmly believe that patients should be given clear and prompt information about their conditions and believe that the most important part of this is an open line of communication.
My personal interests include tennis, basketball, foreign travel and national politics.
