“Nearly three decades ago, my uncle’s diagnosis
of stage four kidney cancer was devastating because there were few treatment options. Since then, cancer treatment has become more effective through tremendous advancements in immunotherapy, chemotherapy, and targeted therapies. As an oncologist, I’m pleased to provide these advanced treatment methods to my patients.”
