Philosophy of Care

Every patient is unique. I believe that the best approach to the diagnosis of breast cancer is a collaborative partnership with a patient and all available breast cancer specialties to achieve a compassionate and individualized treatment plan. Through honest discussion and tailored education, I hope to help empower my patients in all aspects of their medical care to help achieve their personal goals.
