Philosophy of Care

“The reason I wanted to become a medical oncologist is to have the ability to provide care to patients that extends beyond their diagnosis. In order to help someone achieve the highest quality of life possible after receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer, it is essential to treat each patient as a whole. As human beings, we experience emotional stress, we have passions, and we are surrounded by loved ones. My team and I are here to provide state-of-the-art treatment to our patients and help them through the journey of cancer.

“Working with MedStar Washington Hospital Center gives me the opportunity to be part of a healthcare network that works hard to provide all necessary resources and support, whether social or clinical, in order to help patients succeed.”
