Why a patient should choose treatment at your practice?

I view the doctor-patient bond as one of the most important aspects of cancer care. I want my patients to know that I will be caring for them every step of the way throughout our journey together. I strive to offer treatment that is the most effective and right fit for each patient.

What is your personal philosophy around patient care?

Cancer care is an ever-changing landscape with ongoing advances in treatment. Like a jigsaw puzzle, not every patient’s situation is a fit for every treatment, which is why individualized treatment is the present and future of cancer care.

Why did you become a doctor?

I was inspired to become a doctor since childhood. In high school, I spent time shadowing physicians and volunteering in county free medical clinics. In college, I found my passion for cancer through participating in cancer research. Thereafter in my medical education and training, I further solidified my passion for cancer care through various clinical and research experiences.
