“I treat my patients as if they were my own family members. Putting patients first helps us understand what's most important to them and their families.”

— Jinny

What do you hope it’s like for a patient to work with you?

Before being wheeled into the operating room, a patient once said to me, “Treat me as a person, not as a patient.” Patients are our best teachers. It’s important to recognize that each person has their own distinct disease presentation, life circumstances, values, and goals. I view my role as being an ultimate healthcare advocate—to empower patients and guide them to achieve more desirable health outcomes.

Have you been personally impacted by cancer and how has this impacted your work?

A cancer diagnosis of a loved one has likely affected all of us. It is essential as a provider to recognize the highly individualized care and support that each patient requires in order to cope with their disease. I make it a priority with every patient to establish a close relationship with them and their multidisciplinary treatment team. 

I believe that medicine, particularly oncology, is best practiced with an individualistic approach in mind.
