Medical Oncology is a complex, evolving discipline where each case is unique. New research and treatment options are continually emerging and Dr Kalokerinos is committed to staying at the forefront of international developments. He firmly believes that the open communication and active involvement of patients in their management plans is essential to providing optimal care. He also recognises the necessity of integrating other health care professionals, specialists, and general practitioners into the long-term oncological plans of newly diagnosed cancer patients.
The application of these important principles to each individual case enables Dr Kalokerinos to adhere to his philosophy of treating the patient and not just the disease.
