My interest is in the treatment of patients with acute leukemia and related hematologic malignancies. Every person is unique, and their cancer treatment should reflect this. I strive to provide each patient with cancer care that takes into consideration their personal beliefs, priorities, and health issues and is balanced with the latest therapy options.
