Radiation Oncologist

I became an oncologist because I want to cure cancer. Cancer has affected my family and so I also want to do everything in my power to give patients a better quality of life and also be there for them emotionally. Fighting cancer is hard but worth the fight and I always looking forward to seeing my patients happy and doing well in follow-up appointments.
