I am a breast medical oncologist who takes an integrative medicine approach to cancer care. I incorporate complementary therapies into cancer treatment to promote patient’s physical strength and mental resilience, helping them to maintain the best quality of life possible and to support their treatment goals. Such therapies include diet and lifestyle changes, mind-body therapies, physical exercise, acupuncture, and massage therapy. I also counsel patients on dietary supplements so that they can avoid risks associated with their improper use. As a board-certified acupuncturist, I use acupuncture to reduce cancer treatment-induced side effects.
