“My goal for each patient and family is to listen carefully to their concerns and needs, respond to each in a straight-forward, yet compassionate manner, then provide the highest quality of care with the latest methods. It is a pleasure to be associated with Epic Care, as this group delivers the latest options in radiation therapy, systemic therapy, and imaging, for best treatment outcome and quality of life.”
