Dr. Sherwood has a soothing demeanor about him. I think he is truthful, caring and very bright. Most doctors do but not all. I feel very comfortable under his care. W-S and Novant is blessed to have him.

I answered a couple of the early questions wrong and gave them lower numbers. Then I intend to, because Dr. Sherwood covered everything beautifully and understandably gave me all the time I needed and so it should have been 4's straight across. I'm very grateful for my care there. Thanks.

I am a medical oncologist at Novant Health, specializing in lung cancer and thoracic malignancies. My father was my role model growing up and worked as an oral surgeon, which drew me towards a career in medicine from an early age. Like many families, my family was no stranger to cancer.

Very quickly in my medical training, I identified oncology as my area of interest. I made it my goal to always be accessible to my patients, and to communicate the details of their illness, treatment, and prognosis in clear and concise language. I believe it is the patient's right to know all of the details regarding their case and that I should prioritize their input in making treatment decisions.

I am passionate about identifying the latest cutting-edge research opportunities for my patients. That is why I am participating in Novant Health's effort to identify and overcome barriers to treatment for lung cancer patients in order to reduce the time from diagnosis to treatment and improve lung cancer outcomes. This is also why I co-chair the Thoracic Tumor Council and help lead the cancer physician team at Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center.
