Dr.N.K.Warrier also intends to use this App to create awareness about lifestyle changes leading to cancer, effects of tobacco and influences of diet on cancer as prevention and early diagnosis is any day better than a cure. He feels that the emphasis should be given to Prevention and Early Diagnosis as well in addition to curative methods. This would be better for the patient, caregiver, and state by reducing extent and morbidity of the disease, less loss of man-hours and most importantly much-reduced expenses.
Dr. Warrier finds the intense doctor-patient relationship rewarding and also enjoys keeping up with the latest in diagnostic and treatment aspects of Cancer. His personal philosophy is that an oncologist’s responsibilities go beyond the management of Cancer and include educating patients about their disease and treatment and also helping them to meet the financial requirements for their treatment. He believes that no one with a curable malignancy should be denied treatment just because they can’t afford the treatment.
This App aims to be a companion for the patient and care
