About me

Philosophy of care

“I was drawn to practice oncology for many reasons, the most important of which is the special relationship that develops between the patient, his or her family and the physician. I believe each patient’s mind and spirit needs to be considered along with the physical body. I am committed to helping a patient make choices in keeping with his or her goals and values, and I strive to deliver leading-edge cancer care with compassion.”

Dr. Raftery enjoys spending time with her two daughters, cooking, hiking, sculpting and working in her vegetable garden.
