Dr. Azhar Awan

 

"My philosophy of care includes establishing a transparent relationship between physician and patient. It is essential that the patient remains informed about his/her condition and corresponding treatment plan. I always provide an honest assessment of the patient’s condition and prognosis with compassion and concern. It is not only my duty to treat my patients, but to support them along every step along their cancer journey. I am honest and transparent with my patients, and whenever I feel that treatment may lead to more harm than good, I inform patients of such. In addition, I always encourage  my patients to get a second opinion if they have any doubts or concerns about my recommendations."
