ABOUT ME

I believe that all patients and their caregivers expect and deserve close attention to issues that are affecting their quality of life. As an oncologist (cancer doctor) and palliative medicine physician, I aim to make the experience of going through serious cancer less distressful, adding in an extra layer of support.
