Developing Relationships

We had a very young person who was just finishing up her chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer, and we learned that her boyfriend was interested in proposing. We were able to be part of that special day, to finish up that chemotherapy and surprise her on that last day of chemotherapy with him proposing to her. That was a pretty special moment.”

Marc says getting to know the patients and developing relationships is what gets him excited to come to work at Einstein every day. He believes the care a patient receives is more than just the medication or treatment; it’s whatever they need as a person to make them whole. For Marc, “More than Medicine” means recognizing the people he meets as more than just patients, but as a people with individual needs.

Marc, a 1992 graduate of the Air Force Academy, spent five years on active duty and received Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape training.
