After having several family members diagnosed with blood cancer, I was inspired to pursue a career treating lymphoma to help other patients and families affected by this difficult disease. I am a big believer in personalized medicine: that my job as a doctor is not to tell patients what to do, but to work together to find the treatments that best help them achieve their goals by fostering a close and collaborative relationship together. I work with a multi-disciplinary team to bring our patients the most innovative and effective new treatments which often means utilizing our large clinical trial program through which I can provide patients with early access to the newest therapies. My top priority is always that each and every patient entrusted to my care receives the most effective treatment that is consistent with their goals for therapy, whatever they may be.
