“It is fulfilling to me to provide therapies that make a big difference to patients, and even extend their lives, while also being able to follow them through the entire continuity of their care.”
— Mark
What brought you to oncology?

The main thing that brought me here is the connection I make with patients. I think it is especially important in cancer care because people are vulnerable and there is a huge paradigm shift with emotions. We can really establish unique relationships. I enjoy talking to people, and I truly believe our patients are our greatest teachers.

What do you hope it's like for a patient to work with you?

Of course, I want it to be a great experience for the patient, and I also want to establish a collegial environment with everyone I work with. I think patients feel that culture when they walk in, so I am motivated to cultivate a collaborative atmosphere.

I have learned so many things just from hanging out with patients, and they often appreciate a sounding board.
