“I’ve been in practice for more than 20 years, but every day I still consider it an honor to help someone with cancer treatment. As a radiation oncologist, I’ve seen huge advances. But I believe encouragement and compassion are also very important in a patient’s journey with cancer. I do my very best to make sure everyone has this support. “
