I feel privileged to be a part of each patient and their family's care. I value honest and clear communication to help formulate a treatment plan that is specific to each patient's needs and goals.”
Why do you practice oncology?
Dr. Nina Lamble is a medical oncologist who started working in her field because she wanted to help people through a challenging time in their lives. "I continued my education in medicine because the science of disease processes has always been challenging and intriguing," Dr. Lamble says. "I think working in hematology and oncology is the best way I can join these two passions." Dr. Lamble found the science behind blood disorders and cancers fascinating in medical school. "My interest in hematology and oncology was cemented when I first had the opportunity to work with patients in this field," she says. "I was drawn to the relationships that were built between patients, their families and the medical care team, and find this to be the most rewarding part of being a physician." When asked about the changes that she hopes to see with cancer in her lifetime, Dr. Lamble says "I hope that with continued research we are able to better identify treatments that are individualized to each patient in order to minimize toxicity. Earlier detection of cancer is also very important, as this will hopefully lead to more curative treatments." When she's not working, Dr. Lamble loves spending time with her daughter and husband, as well as exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
