An important part of my job is helping my patients to understand their unique situations and available treatment options. I am proud that MRO’s cutting-edge technology allows us to create the best individual treatment plans to attack cancer and minimize the side effects as much as possible. Working as a team, our highly trained staff has many years of experience and is an important part of MRO’s caring culture.
