Care Philosophy

As a UCLA Professor who is active in teaching radiation oncology residents, I  teach my patients as to what  is happening to their body and what to expect both emotionally and physically when diagnosed with cancer. Positive encouragement and proper nutrition are critical in this fight. We provide state of the art cancer care  in a friendly, compassionate setting. We incorporate the latest scientific research with state-of-the-art radiation techniques in your treatment. I am committed to foster a strong relationship with each patient based on trust, open communication, and compassion. We offer integrative oncology services to support your well-being and decrease stress with on-site nutritionists, cancer care navigators, and supportive care /meditation services. One my patient's wrote: "Going through such a difficult time, I never expected to be happy to see the smiling faces that greeted me every day let alone miss them when my treatment was over."
