Philosophy of Care
Dr. Hutchinson believes that exceptional care requires an interdisciplinary approach combining the efforts of medical oncologists, surgeons, and radiation oncologists. She teaches her patients about their disease so that they can make decisions about their care that best matches their goals.
Kendra Hutchinson's clinical interests include breast cancer and hospice/palliative medicine. Her practice is focused on breast cancer, therefore, she is able to offer clinical trials to her patients.
