Dr. Atwater says: €œI chose the field of oncology because I get to work with some of the most devoted and compassionate pet owners, helping them make the best decision for their animal's cancer. This is an often satisfying aspect of a sometimes frustrating specialty. Often times, I can provide some hope, when none is expected. Although most of my patients are never cured of their cancer, they typically obtain good quality of life for the remainder of their time.€
