“There is really no other profession where you can make a difference in people’s health and illness like medicine,” said Marcus Neubauer, MD, an oncologist at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA). “I like the challenge of utilizing science and caring in treating patients.”
Dr. Neubauer believes in spending time educating his patients and their family members on the issues related to his or her disease. “Then we come up with a plan that incorporates my expertise and their values,” he said. Dr. Neubauer participates in clinical research at SCCA and hopes to ultimately be part of finding a cure for cancer. “Short of that, improvement in outcomes and, just as important, minimization of treatment toxicity,” he said, are his goals.
After work, Dr. Neubauer likes to be outside and play tennis.
