Care Philosophy

Tanyel’s philosophy of care represents more than a perspective; it's a promise. She believes there are a range of additional factors that go beyond providing for a patient's physical health and comfort and that empathic care is central to the practice of social work.

Knowing that she can apply her personal experiences and contribute to a client's recovery and wellness gives Tanyel a sense of personal pride, which in turn, strengthens her commitment to Texas Oncology. Tanyel is dedicated to working with spouses, family members, and loved ones to ensure her patients receive the best possible care and resources.
