Dr. Sophia Rahman
“As a Radiation Oncologist, it is a privilege to provide medical care for my patients; care that is based on the most current clinical evidence and latest technology. It is my goal to establish a relationship of confidence and trust with my patients and their families, so that I may educate them with all of the available treatment options, and guide them in making the best decisions for themselves. I believe in treating the whole patient, not just the disease for I have found that in doing so, the human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it.”
