Practice Philosophy: The principle that guides me is true patient-centered care. The final decision is with the patient. It is up to me to make sure that the patient has all the information they need communicated in a way that they can understand and feel comfortable in making that decision.
It is great to be in a position where I can use all three of my degrees. I love interacting with patients. I can help them with my medical background in oncology, hospice and palliative care and pharmaceuticals. I also can help them and their families by helping to run an organization that is ethical, sustainable and integral to the community.
