    Personal statement

    I want my patients to know that the entire team at Markey Cancer Center really cares for them. The opportunity to bring light into a patient’s life at a time when they’re uncertain is very rewarding. We are here to give them the time they need, there's no rush.

    My favorite slogan is always, "There's no rushing medicine.” We do not rush patients in and out. That's not what we're here for, we're here to help. We form long-lasting relationships with our patients at Markey Cancer Center, and this is unique and very satisfying for me.
