"...it was the excitement of learning and deciphering a largely incurable disease, that drew me to Oncology."

I have always liked reading and in school math was my favorite subject. In medical school I liked physiology as it helped me to understand disorders logically. Ultimately, it was the excitement of learning and deciphering a largely incurable disease, that drew me to Oncology. Here I found a bright, dedicated and compassionate team of colleagues and staff who care for those with very difficult challenges.
