I am convinced that caring for patients with malignant hematologic diseases requires not only up-to-date medical knowledge, but also an understanding of the individual patient's needs and circumstances. I encourage patients to take an active role in their treatment and recovery and I work with them to develop an individualized treatment plan that includes the most advanced therapies available today. My practice focuses primarily on disorders of the lymphatic system (Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia). As an integral part of my clinical activities, I am dedicated to teaching young physicians at all levels of training and educating the next generation of hematologists.
