Blog: On Compassion
"One of my dearest patients for whom I have cared for such a very long time has recently had a worsening turn in her situation. Trying to gently but honestly share that with her and her family gave me a moment to think about how differently patients and doctors may understand compassion. These are my thoughts...."On Compassion"
I’m Sorry You’re Here…
You’re here because breast cancer has touched you or someone close to you. For that, I’m sorry. However, the REALLY GOOD NEWS is that doctors, scientists, and even patients are constantly improving our understanding of this disease through research. The more we know about breast cancer, the better we can treat and even prevent it. When you visit my office, you are getting the best of all of these discoveries. The catalyst of my practice is a devotion to research and new discovery, a relentless pursuit of a cure that will bring 100% healing to my friends and family in and around the office. If you, or someone you know is newly diagnosed or is suffering with this most dreadful disease, I want you to know you are not alone. Please make an appointment and come see me. Together we have the strength it takes to beat this disease.
