Dr. Bindiya G. Patel and Dr. Jori Sheade are two of Northwestern Medicine’s premier medical oncologists, both of whom provide care at Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital Cancer Center and Northwestern Medicine Cancer Centers at both Grayslake and Glenview Outpatient Centers.
Dr. Patel is board certified in both Hematology and Medical Oncology and has a clinical interest in lung cancer. She understands inherently that every patient with cancer is different, and she works diligently to create a personalized plan to fit each patient’s specific goals and preferences. “I believe open communication with the patient and each member of the patient’s team is the key to comprehensive cancer care,” she says. “My goal is to help patients navigate this difficult time the same way that I would help my own family navigate a similar situation.” Dr. Sheade most commonly treats breast cancers, which are a special interest and passion for her. Several types of breast cancers exist, each requiring a unique approach to treatment. This can be one of the challenges of treating breast cancer, however, Dr. Sheade chooses to see this element as an upside: “We can truly practice precision medicine,” she shares. “I went into oncology because cancer treatment has undergone rapid changes in the past decade. We are curing more people and those with metastatic disease live for years longer than before. One of the biggest challenges we are confronting is how to balance the treatment of the disease while also maintaining a good quality of life for people living with cancer. There may be a different answer for each person, and it will be incredibly important to individualize treatment for each person.” Both doctors add that oncology is a rapidly innovating field with new treatment options, like immunotherapy, frequently becoming available which has helped make great strides for improving patient survival and quality of life.
