"I believe the most important part of my job is to provide hope. Patient contact and interactions are very important to me. I help people cope with very intimate and difficult issues and provide them comfort by also addressing the emotional and social implications of their illness. I find personal gratification in taking sophisticated disease information and breaking it down to a level the patient can understand. Giving patients the information they understand and need empowers them to make the best decisions for their health care."
