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.”

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.
