My passion for Hematology & Oncology began as a resident in Tacoma Washington. The Hematology-Oncology staff were incredibly dedicated to patient care beloved by their patients and provided the best learning environment a young doctor could experience. During this training my mother passed away from cancer confirming my desire to enter this field and provide the same dedicated and compassionate care as my mentors. Throughout my 15 years of practice I think of every patient as a member of my family with my goal to provide the best care humanly possible. I enjoy laughing with patients getting to know their families and friends but most importantly making sure they understand their diagnosis treatment options and prognosis. Sadly that also comes with sharing bad news leading to many hugs cries and handholding. I have been very active in clinical research throughout my career trying to find better ways to treat cancer with the hope and prayer of one day finding a cure (and putting myself out of business!). When not at work I am equally dedicated to my wife and 3 children. I am avid fan of both playing and watching numerous sports to include baseball/softball tennis golf and basketball.Read more
