Balancing symptoms and quality of life of each cancer patient is a top priority. My job is to get the maximum efficacy from the cancer treatment I choose while minimizing the side effects that impact the day to day quality of life of my patients. Helping my cancer patients live longer is not my only goal; how they live is equally important to me.

"As I explained in another paragraph, the doctor explained to me in a simple way the situation for which previous analyses came out low, so now I can understand it and take much better measures. I will still inform my doctor of his explanation about it."
