What is your personal philosophy around patient care?

The human aspect of oncology touches me personally and drives me professionally to help keep fighting cancer. It is why I want to keep advocating for individuals that are confronted with tremendous adversity and thrust into a very challenging circumstance. To care for cancer patients, you can't help but be inspired by their qualities such as courage, determination, grace, and perseverance. It is that inspiration derived from caring for patients that remains the driving force in my practice.
