Find a Cancer Specialist

“When I see a patient, I immediately picture them as if that patient were me, or any of my family, and I ask myself how I would want myself, or my family, treated. When I drive home every evening, I think about how that patient could have been my wife, or could have been my mother, or could have been me.”
-Ayad Al-Katib, M.D.
