“I treat my patients as though they are my own family, and with the same sensitivity and concern. It’s important to me that patients and their families have all information about the diagnosis, resources, and treatment options available to them so they can make informed decisions about their care,” says Dr. Kataki. “I look forward to working with our team to offer our patients state-of-the-art care and to enhance our research and treatment targets.”
