The clinical problems and complex treatment decisions in Oncology is a challenge and I love that . At the same time these patients need compassionate care .The " C "word is quite scary. Guiding them though this tough road is not an easy job. Being an oncologist, professionally it is very gratifying that I am able to help my patients go though this uphill task.
