"My interest in becoming an oncologist was driven by a desire to help patients with cancer navigate through the challenges they face with their disease and to help minimize their suffering and enhance their chance of a cure. I see myself as an expert guide for patients with cancer throughout their journey, and I always try to find the right mix of hope and science that fits each individual patient and helps her or him return to their normal life."
