“I’ve always been motivated to make an impact on the lives of others, which is why I chose to pursue medicine. After 15 years as a cancer-treatment specialist, this is still my motivation…but now I’m able to be an even more effective collaborator and partner in helping people live longer, fuller lives. The goal is to find the best treatment options for each individual in my care, and today we have a much deeper understanding of cancer as a disease and a broader array of therapies. But providing the most effective, appropriate treatment isn’t just about the best, most up-to-date science- and evidence-based therapies. It also hinges on the human touch and personalizing every aspect of my care to the individual in front of me.”
