“I enjoy partnering with patients to get them through the difficult times that come along with cancer. It's rewarding to build these long term relationships with patients and see them through the months or years, becoming part of their healthcare family.”
— Dr. Diehl
Why did you decide to specialize in your treatment focus?

I wanted to be in a field where there was hope on the horizon. Hematology oncology is a challenging area of practice, but the research in this field is generating innovation in the treatment of the disease. With the continuous new developments, I'm excited to be able to offer new and better treatments for my patients.

How would you describe your approach to care?

I see myself not just as a clinician, but also as a patient guide. My goal is to share in their successes when things go well, and guide them through challenges when things get tough. It's these meaningful interactions with patients that I find most satisfying.

Of all the cancer treatment centers, why should a patient trust SCCA and your team with their care?

Everyone in the SCCA system is working together as a community providing both standard care and the latest treatments to ensure patients can live their best life. At SCCA Evergreen, my goal is to bring the expertise developed through the research programs at Fred Hutch and SCCA to the community so people don't have to commute to Seattle to take part in clinical trials and receive other leading-edge treatments.

Research

Clinical trials

We make promising new treatments available to you through studies called clinical trials led by Fred Hutch doctors. Many of these trials at Fred Hutch have led to FDA-approved treatments and have improved standards of care globally. Together, you and your doctor can decide if a study is right for you.

Publications

Many of our Fred Hutch doctors conduct ongoing research to improve standards of patient care. Their work is evaluated by other doctors and selected for publication to the United States National Library of Medicine, the largest medical library in the world.
