Care Philosophy

Hematopoietic cell transplantation is a life-saving procedure when personalized to each patient. I believe in each patient’s right to make an informed decision regarding their treatment options based on the best available evidence that also meets with their own goals of care. Patients in my clinic will be offered novel clinical trial options as well in an effort to improve outcomes beyond the standard of care.
