Date:6/19/2009

e world of doctor-patient communication through various studies that seek to determine the best ways for patients to disclose their fears about surgeries, treatments and life in general.

"I want my patients to know they are not alone. As a part of their medical team I am here to help them fight their battle, and I care about each and every one of them. My patients are far more to me than another surgery on my schedule," said Dr. Easter. "As a regular attendee of the Luau & Longboard Invitational, I am thrilled and deeply honored to be selected for this year's Rell Sunn Award. I will display this award proudly because I believe that a surgeon's humanity can be just as important as one's skills with a scalpel."

Dr. Easter was the first recipient of the Vice Chancellor's Excellence in Clinical Care award at UCSD and has prepared the UCSD Cancer Center to truly treat the whole patient from head-to-toe, inside-and-out. He has formed and trained specialized clinical teams to care for patients who have particular types of cancer and continues to focus on the safety and well-being of all patients.

"Dr. Easter has the ability to form profound relationships with his patients and the bonds that are formed run deep," said Dennis Carson, M.D., director of the Moores UCSD Cancer Center. "So deep that people from all over the world travel just for the chance to meet with him; his opinions and evaluations are invaluable to his patients."
