For Dr. Abu-Shahin, a patient’s peace of mind is of the utmost importance – especially when facing a serious illness such as cancer – because having peace of mind improves quality of life. He wants his patients to understand that a cancer diagnosis is not a death sentence. In addition to providing his medical expertise to patients, he also provides compassion. He says his patients become his friends and family, and he and the other experts at the Wellmont Cancer Institute will protect and love them.
