“I decided on oncology while completing internal medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital. My first patient was a young Navy SEAL with mesothelioma. He and his family met with Dr. Thomas Lynch, a renowned expert in lung cancer. Dr. Lynch immediately put everyone at ease and made it clear that he would take the best care possible of this young man, both emotionally and physically. I knew by the end of that young man’s visit that cancer care was right for me.”Natasha Tiffany, MD
