“I treat patients as if they were my own family, and I am honored to be able to help in times of need. I try to communicate on a level where understanding is optimized with patients and families as I realize that there is a lot of overwhelming and confusing information in medicine.”
— Andrew
Why do you practice oncology?

Prior to his experience in patient care, Andrew Lin worked in an HPV research lab for four years. He also worked as a research coordinator for two years on cancer studies. He ultimately decided on a career in healthcare to help those in need. "Several of my family members and friends have had, or have passed away from cancer. To me, it is important to have compassion and sympathy for patients and families stricken with cancer," Andrew says. Andrew manages CAR T-Cell patients when they are admitted to the University of Washington Medical Center. He also has several acute myeloid leukemia patients on study protocol.  Outside of work, Andrew enjoys swimming, yoga, travel, spending time with friends, watching movies and eating.

Research

Clinical trials

We make promising new treatments available to you through studies called clinical trials led by SCCA doctors. Many of these trials at SCCA 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.

Your care team

At SCCA, you receive care from a team of providers with extensive experience in your disease. Your team includes doctors, a team coordinator, a registered nurse, an advanced practice provider and others, based on your needs. You also have access to experts like nutritionists, social workers, acupuncturists, psychiatrists and more who specialize in supporting people with cancer or blood disorders.
