Treatment Philosophy

Cancer treatment and bone marrow transplant represent a journey for my patients and their families, and it’s my sincere privilege to be a part of this experience. I consider us all to be critical members of a cohesive team in making the right decisions to meet my patients’ treatment goals while maintaining quality of life.
