What is your approach to care?

The same disease can mean very different things for each patient. An important part of my job is to partner with you to match the possibilities for treatment with your goals and preferences.

Provider background

Specialty: Medical Oncology

B-cell malignancies

At SCCA, I specialize in treating B-cell malignancies, a diverse group of diseases that includes non-Hodgkin lymphomas and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). In addition to caring for patients at SCCA, I also provide general oncology care at the Seattle VA. My research is focused on two main areas. The first is investigating novel, low-toxicity therapies for B-cell malignancies and the second is studying how patient factors affect cancer treatments and their outcomes.

Research

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.

Publications

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