I decided to join Fox Chase Cancer Center because of the expertise in the field of sarcoma and the institution’s dedication to cancer care. I continue to be impressed by the passion toward this mission exhibited by every employee here.
Patients with sarcomas are usually otherwise healthy and young – therefore I think that it is of utmost importance to find new drugs for this disease. My interest in clinical research includes finding new agents for patients with sarcoma and melanoma and trying to figure out why certain patients respond to treatments and others don’t.
A cancer diagnosis is a life changing event. I think it is important for patients to feel confidant in the care they are receiving. I hope that my patients always feel that they are important and that the relationship allows them to maintain hope and control during this time in their life.
