So, it was a long time ago when I was a training physician, and it was my first day at the cancer unit, and definitely, just like any young doctor, I was very worried to go into a new thing. But when I reached there, and I saw so many patients battling with this cancer, but there is strength in the way they are fighting this disease with full force. That gave me the strength, and that’s the day I decided that this is what I want to do.
Our major goal is that we feel that when patients are diagnosed with cancer we want to fight along with them. A major goal or motive is, “we will take care of you.” There’s the most important part of care. And the most important thing is everybody is very loving, and they welcome you with very open arms. And you feel like this is your own home, and that’s the best thing about this place.
It’s better to prepare, to write the questions that you have in mind like: “What diagnosis do I have?” “What kind of stage I have?” “What kind of treatments I will get, what toxicities or side effects I will face, whether I will be able to work with it or not.” So there are some, so its’ better to write some questions.
I have patients from all age groups, but as patients grow older we see more cancer in those patients so a male, female, young, old, all kinds of patients we see here. The best part is when they feel better or they have achieved whatever goal they have. And when patients feel happy that’s the best point.
