There’s a lot of exciting things about being a thoracic medical oncologist. The options for treating our patients have expanded so greatly in the past several years and it’s an exciting time as just, it seems like every day, just more and more information is coming out about ways to not only diagnose and work up our patients, but to find the most appropriate treatment that has the highest chance of success in treating our patients.
