Twenty years as a cancer surgeon has taught me this above all: the most powerful medicine flows from the heart, not the hands." The choice of GYN oncology seemed a natural fit for me. As a teenager, I cared for a family member who eventually died from her cancer. I trained at MD Anderson Cancer Center and am now a partner in a multi-specialty cancer practice in Tulsa, Oklahoma. While I’m a long way from my small-town South Carolina roots, I continue to channel the entrepreneurial spirit of my grandfather (Daniel Lee). He ran a successful business despite the historical and cultural odds stacked against. He also preached love every day of his life, and it is this spirit that I bring to the mindset and self-care work of www.Drdwaynemd.com. My daughter is a PhD candidate and social justice warrior. My husband, a wedding florist, helps me raise our two fur-babies Duke and Oliver. My podcast Words of Love is on AppleTunes and Spotify.
