Why a patient should choose treatment at your practice?

The amazing aspect of Texas Oncology is that we can offer high-quality patient care in a location that keeps our patient close to home. The benefit of practicing at both the Mesquite practice and the Innovative Clinical Trail Center is that we can offer a standard of care cancer therapy while also having the resources to extend patients the opportunity to participate in first class clinical trials.  

What is your personal philosophy around patient care?

My personal philosophy around patient care is to always to lead with compassion and strive to provide all of my patients with the most individualized, highest level of care possible. It is truly my privilege to be able to care for patients in their most vulnerable state during their fight against cancer. I take a very personal responsibility to not only address cancer as a disease process but also provide support for the corresponding mental and emotional stress.

Why did you become a doctor?

I’ve known that I wanted to be a physician since I was a little girl based on the simple notion of wanting to help my family members who were suffering from cancer to be better.  However, as I grew up, it was the combination of my scientific curiosity and my great empathy and appreciation of the human spirit that cemented my path to the medical field.
