Dr. Al-Khaifi is passionate about patient education, specifically in the area of breast cancer. Dr. Al-Khaifi aims to bring her experience in caring for marginalized populations to examine how teams can meet the needs of the most disadvantaged women diagnosed with breast cancer. Her goal is to provide a space for care that is culturally safe and non-judgmental. She is also a public speaker, and she has been invited to present her work on breast cancer survivorship care at several national and international conferences and sessions. Dr. Alkhaifi is passionate about incorporating more novel programs into postgraduate medical education and to enhance important competencies, such as empathy and cultural sensitivity.

I am specialized in:
Breast Diseases • Women's Health • Sexual Health • Menopause
To advocate for high quality, evidence-based and individualized survivorship care for people who’ve been affected by breast cancer.
Given my lived experience as a breast disease specialist, I met many breast cancer survivors who continue to suffer after the completion of treatment . Many of them have told me that while they felt they had lots of information and support during their illness, once treatment stopped, they entered a whole new world. I felt their anxieties, uncertainties and fears. I realized that we can do more to help our patients. I felt responsible and decided to create this website to provide them with trusted information and support.
My intention is that every breast cancer survivor who comes across this space finds something relevant and helpful here. I also hope that other physicians find some guidance to support the provision of breast cancer survivorship care.
