Dr. Shahid Latif

“I come from Pakistan where medical care is not good. I saw cancer in my family first hand. Those memories are etched in my mind. I went to medical school to become a doctor so I could help others. I treat all patients as if they are my family. That means meeting their basic needs and using medical technology to give them the best shot at beating cancer.”

Dr. Latif is a family man. His two beautiful granddaughters are his pride and joy. Dr. Latif and his wife enjoy learning about other cultures by traveling to different geographical areas and spending time where real people live. He also enjoys reading and gardening in his spare time.
