Our patient-empowered approach to treating cancer fits well with Dr. Dennis Citrin’s philosophy. He says there is no question that cancer risk is tied directly to genetics and lifestyle. He agrees that our program promoting exercise and proper nutrition is beneficial to patients in treatment, as well as in prevention of cancer.
