Salman Waheed, MD

Philosophy of Care

I believe no one should have to face a diagnosis of cancer alone. I strive to provide personalized, compassionate, and the highest quality care for my patients. I believe in involving my patients in the decision making process and using a comprehensive, team-based approach.
