Deborah's Patient Care Philosophy
It is a privilege to be able to share in each patient's unique cancer situation and my goal is to try to help them feel as comfortable, confident, and secure as possible throughout this emotional and difficult experience. I believe in open and honest communication and try my best to really listen to what patients have to say.~
