“Gynecologic Oncology is the only specialty where the surgeon also acts as a medical oncologist thereby allowing for a special relationship with every patient. Each patient has their own unique story to tell and each one has something to teach you. When patients put their trust in me, it is a huge responsibility. But it is also a bonus because we effectively become a team and work through things together.“
