"I knew since my first year of medical school that I wanted to pursue a career in hematology and oncology. I am truly honored and consider it a privilege to help patients during this most difficult time in their lives. The most important aspect for me is definitely the patient interactions and life long relationships that I am able to build as a cancer specialist. Providing support, compassion and hope for my patients throughout their cancer journey is what I strive for. I look forward to being there every step of the way and providing the best care that I can."

  • "(Translated by Google) At the first appointment I had with Dr Alcid, I felt great confidence about my treatment. He ordered a special study for me, which made it possible to find another problem in my head that urgently requires careful monitoring. He has been very kind and always willing to listen and provide timely information. I thank God for bringing me to him. Dr. Alcid, you are a safe harbor. Thank you.
