Dr. Mohebtash’ s Philosophy of Care

“It has been a privilege to care for numerous cancer patients throughout the years. The relationship shaped between a patient and an oncologist is extensive, profound, and highly personal. In today's medical landscape, patients have a multitude of treatment options compared to two decades ago. I dedicate time to elucidate these options, along with their respective pros and cons, ensuring that my patients comprehend the information and can make well-informed decisions.

I strongly advocate for personalized care, emphasizing the necessity of tailoring treatment plans to meet each patient's unique needs. This approach considers not only the medical aspects but also addresses the emotional and social needs of every individual. While recognizing that not all cancers can be cured, my commitment is unwavering in the hope that I can help each and every patient."
