Treatment & Care Philosophy
We profess absolute honesty in dealing with our patients and expect the same in return. We believe an informed patient is the best patient and always welcome questions, answering them with honesty and openness.
We usually offer conventional treatment in cases where treatment of proven benefit is available. In the absence of such treatment, patients are given the option of participating in clinical trials.
Cancer treatments are constantly evolving. Often there is more than one option, and there may not be a "best option." In such cases, the treatment options will be fully explained to you, and your informed consent will be obtained before starting any treatment.
