Sophia Rahman, MD
In her own words
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, to educate them with all of the available treatment options, and guide them in making the best decisions for themselves. I truly believe in treating the whole patient, not just the disease. In doing so, I have found that the human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it.
