“My Mom developed ovarian cancer while I was in medical school. That is why I went into Oncology as a field. Working with patients in a time of need, I strive to provide the best, most up-to-date treatment to each patient. I feel strongly in working as a team with other doctors to provide the best care to patients. In general, I try to be kind and respectful to everyone.”
