Dr. Ashai’s Philosophy of Care

I offer the latest evidence-based treatment options specific to patients’ tumor biology and personal goals of care. I also offer novel treatment options in the form of clinical trials. I work collaboratively with patients to ensure we’re all on the same page when we move forward with treatment decisions, and I include patients’ support network in treatment planning whenever possible.
