A Dedicated Team of Cancer Experts
Dr. Williams and her nurse practitioner work as a team. They oversee and are involved in every aspect of their patients’ care—not just the surgery and/or chemotherapy.
Dr. Pankaj Vashi, who specializes in nutrition and metabolic support for patients, is one of many clinical experts at CTCA at Midwestern Regional Medical Center (Midwestern) who collaborate with Dr. Williams.
Dr. Williams says, “Many of my patients have ovarian cancer, which literally affects their ability to eat and absorb foods. A large portion of these patients are somewhat malnourished when they come to us seeking treatment. That’s why working with Dr. Vashi for nutrition and metabolic support is essential. Together we address our ovarian cancer patients’ nutritional needs as they undergo chemotherapy and other treatments.”
Additionally, Dr. Williams works closely with the other surgeons on staff at Midwestern. For example, she and Drs. Ray and Sanchez (a surgical oncologist) have evaluated patients together.
Dr. Williams says, “It’s an example of how we work together to find the best approach for treating each patient.”
She also attends endorsement meetings three times a week, at which CTCA clinicians from all disciplines gather to discuss their patients’ treatment plans.
