William I. Bensinger, MD

Dr. Bensinger is the director of the autologous transplant program and treats patients with multiple myeloma, amyloidosis, and plasmacytoma.

Patient Care Philosophy:

I think it is important to understand patients' needs and goals during the management of their disease. Once I understand this, I feel I am better able to suggest appropriate therapies designed to minimize symptoms and achieve their wishes. Above all I value a patient's autonomy with regard to the management of their illness; the patient has to undergo any proposed treatments and thus must have the last word with regard to therapy choices.
