When developing a specific treatment plan, Dr. Dungo shares, “My approach focuses on the patient as a whole person, not simply limited to their medical health and medications, but also taking into account their personal goals, social situation and constraints. My goal is to always try to educate and empower them…to get them through this by being their own advocate, and hopefully shine as a mentor for others, to help change the stigma of cancer.”
