"Most patients really want a doctor who is a partner, and there's an immediate connection once they sense your passion," said Dr. Formenti, chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology and the Sandra and Edward Meyer Professor of Cancer Research. "I look at my team and it is made of people who are determined, passionate and stubborn —they never give up. They are ready to go the extra mile to make a difference."
