Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Blobe "I specialize in patients with gastrointestinal diseases with a special emphasis on colorectal and pancreatic cancer. Duke is a special place because of its compassionate clinicians and multidisciplinary care. Working in the same building with our colleagues in surgical and radiation oncology allows us to offer a holistic approach to cancer care. At the same time were doing research on many of the cancers were seeing to try to move the field forward and that gives patients access to clinical trials that are at the cutting-edge. When I see a patient with cancer I know they are dealing with a major change in their life and I know its very scary for them. I look at every patient I see as someone who could be my mother or my brother or my child. I take that responsibility very seriously. I love interacting with patients and getting to know them not just as patients but as families and members of our community."
