Other Information

Dr. Pulaski’s philosophy is that cancer treatments are complicated enough without adding travel and traffic to the mix, so she is grateful for the opportunity to give full-service cancer care including chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, clinical trials and survivorship support close to her patients’ homes, families and primary medical teams. She loves her role in educating patients on their treatment options and supports them in coming to their own decisions about their choices and goals. She is often heard to say in the clinic that on the cancer journey, her patient is the “captain of the ship”, and her role is to serve as the map reader and navigator. Thankfully options for cancer treatment continue to expand but that often makes the process overwhelming. Dr. Pulaski loves that she can help her patients through the process and while doing so learn more about them and their life outside of our office so she can ensure to help them choose the best treatment plan for them. Outside of the office, Dr. Pulaski dedicates her time to her family as well as working in her garden and trying new recipes. She also enjoys camping and travel and is working on their family bucket list to visit all of the national parks.
