About Me

Care Philosophy
  • Cancer research was the reason that brought me to an academic institution - the ability to treat cancer patients and to do cancer research. That's why I'm here.Many people think that oncology could be depressing. I think it's the other way around. I think it's very rewarding. And what is rewarding for me is that I am with my patients in the often critical times of their lives. We have a very deep relationship and a deep bond that gives me that profound sense of satisfaction and the feeling that I've done everything possible.
