“I chose to go into hematology/oncology because it’s a constantly evolving field that can encompass every other subspecialty. I truly enjoy the relationship I build with you, and strive to be comforting, hopeful, and honest. I believe that ensuring you’re as comfortable as possible, combined with an open line of communication, and an accessible environment, will all help provide the best treatment experience. With my access to clinical trials, I have the ability to give you an up-to-date approach. I treat every case differently. My approach is never routine, and catered specifically to you.”
