My focus is to always treat the patient – not just the disease. I find that giving the patient time and respect is critical to developing a sense of trust, because it is a team effort with the patient in the center. I’ve told people many times that I value quality of life as highly as the quantity of life. Therefore, I use every resource at my disposal to address the problems. When treating neuroendocrine cancer, it is absolutely imperative to approach it with a multi-disciplinary approach because it crosses into so many different medical subspecialties.
