When patients come first, they live longer, fuller lives. Our five-year survival rate for patients with metastatic cancer is nearly five times greater than the national rate. See the data and learn what the gift of more time means to the people we care for.
I met Dr. Ghosh in 2004 when my dad was diagnosed with cancer. I was working as in adult cardiology as a nurse practitioner and loved my cardiac patients. At my dad’s appointments, my family and I felt cared for. Everyone in Dr. Ghosh’s office, from the receptionist to the nurses and ultimately Dr. Ghosh, treated us with respect, listened to our concerns, answered all of our questions, educated us to make informed decisions and genuinely cared for us.
Although I never expected to leave my love of cardiology, when asked, I eventually decided to be part of Dr. Ghosh’s “Patients First” vision. I took a leap of faith and joined Dr. Ghosh in 2006. I have walked this cancer walk as a daughter, friend and provider and bring that perspective to our patients and their loved ones.
I am abundantly blessed to have a husband who loves and supports me unconditionally and four amazing children. My family provides me with lots of laughter and lots of stories to share. There is never a dull moment in our house. My time outside of The Ghosh Center is spent with my family. I do get the opportunity to travel once in a while, which I enjoy. I love to binge-read a good book and am a whiz at jigsaw puzzles, a skill I shared with my dad.
My patients teach me things every day. I watch them walk this walk and see how amazing the human spirit is. The people I meet impact my life in profound and meaningful ways. It’s a privilege to be part of their journey.
