Timothy M. Carlos, MDDr. Timothy Carlos became a doctor because he "enjoys the interpersonal interactions with patients and the science of medicine," he says. With a primary interest in hematology, he learned to enjoy solid tumor oncology while serving as an oncologist in the Air Force from 1982 to 1986.
In addition to seeing patients, Dr. Carlos is active in clinical research trials for gastrointestinal and lung cancers, as well as malignant hematology.
The future of medicine he sees that "a shift in a molecular approach to therapies will supersede the historical use of chemotherapy."
Outside of work, Dr. Carlos enjoys outdoor activities, photography, and reading.
Timothy M. Carlos, MDDr. Carlos is a hematologist and medical oncologist who treats patients exclusively at SCCA at EvergreenHealth.
Patient Care Philosophy:I enjoy the interpersonal relationships with my patients and their families. While the goal is to cure all my patients, I try to express that I will always be with them through their journey.
