Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Van Mater "Im a pediatric hematologist and oncologist that treats children with cancer and non-malignant blood problems. Additionally I work in the neurofibromatosis clinic where I collaborate with other outstanding care providers throughout Duke to care for patients with neurofibromatosis and related disorders. I strive to utilize the resources of the Duke system to improve the health of my patients. Working with kids is very inspiring. I love the way that they handle adversity with such courage. Their energy and hope really carries me through the day. When I meet a child and their family for the first time I try to identify the key problems that are affecting their life and preventing them from doing things that are important to them. My goal is to make their life as normal as possible. Outside of work I enjoy coaching youth soccer playing ultimate frisbee and spending time with my wife and our three kids."
