As a team they work hard to provide for their children, and as individuals they support one another in their important, demanding, and rewarding careers.

Dr. Wilson’s medical philosophy is composed of several virtues that allow her to achieve a balance among providing the highest quality of patient care; advocating for her patients; being a team player; and educating her patients, students, and colleagues using the years of knowledge and experience she has accumulated.
Although Dr. Wilson tends to follow the standard cancer treatment guidelines as well as the SWOG protocol in treating her patients, occasionally she does feel it necessary to deviate from those guidelines depending on specific patient needs and scenarios.
