Personal Statement

I firmly believe that world-class patient care requires compassion and empathy. My philosophy of medicine is simple: Not only do I strive to provide the most cutting-edge treatments to my patients, but I also make them the centerpiece of medical decision making. The therapeutic landscape of oncology is ever-evolving with novel treatment strategies, targeted and immunotherapies, and precision medicine technology. Therefore, it is so important for physicians to have effective communication with patients and their caregivers in order to determine the best treatment option for each patient’s unique needs. I strive to personalize care of every patient by incorporating the latest clinical research, evidence-based medicine and molecularly-guided treatments. I am also fortunate to be part of Weill Cornell Medicine, where I can offer my patients several clinical trials, giving them early access to novel treatments often years before they are available elsewhere.
