Dr. Kathryn B. Alguire is a board-certified medical oncologist who received her undergraduate and medical school education from Michigan State University. In the last several years, she has narrowed her focus to mostly breast cancer patients, and finds it remarkable the science that has led to improvements in rates of cure, as well as patients living longer with a good quality of life, despite metastatic disease.
“I am passionate about using this science and translating it in the clinic to help our patients; however, what is most rewarding is working with the patients themselves,” Dr. Alguire says. “Seeing them face what is likely the most serious health issues in their lifetime often with great courage and often humor is inspiring every single day.”
Having her own close-to-home experience with terminal cancer, Alguire seeks to understand how life changing this diagnosis can be and to deliver empathetic and compassionate care, while also providing the best therapies available.
