"I believe in a multidisciplinary approach to cancer care that promotes teamwork, communication and education. At CMH, we surround the patient with skilled people to provide support at all levels.

We offer a comprehensive range of treatment options, and our affiliation with Massachusetts General Hospital enables us to give patients access to a wide array of clinical research trials."
