My Hope for
Amrita Desai, MD
No cancer is routine, and as a medical oncologist, I don’t
believe a patient’s treatment should be either.
Each member of the CMH-OHSU Knight Cancer Collaborative
care team believes in the power of personal connections. By
understanding each patient’s needs, concerns, and unique
set of circumstances, we can help to ensure better health
outcomes and the best possible patient-experience.
Medical Excellence without the Miles.
