Physician Bio

Dr. Ira Gore

Dr. Ira Gore

Dr. Gore on his inspiration for becoming a physician and his motivation to work with cancer patients:

“Initially, I wanted to be a scientist because I was interested in what made cells become cancerous.  During my training, I made connections with a lot of my patients and soon learned that I would rather spend my day talking to them than studying their cells.  I come to work hoping to find a patient who can beat the rogue cells.”
