"I find taking care of patients with breast cancer challenging and rewarding.  The treatment of breast cancer is always changing, with rapid advances.  The more we learn, the more we realize that every breast cancer, like every patient, is different and requires individual treatments.  There is no “one size fits all” treatment any more.  I enjoy finding the best treatment for any patient.  I think with all the new research, there is so much hope for women with breast cancer and I feel privileged to be able to help them on their journey."
