My Little Something Extra: I promise to all my patients that I will always strive not only to provide them with the best medical care but to also give a personalized treatment. I will fight to assure that my patients get the best possible medical care. There have been huge advances in cancer care. This has been accomplished by doing clinical research. I understand that not every patient will want to participate in research but I strongly believe that patients should be given the opportunity to join research projects dedicated to improve not only their own personal treatment but also to improve cancer treatment in general.
