Care Philosophy

Our lymphoma group practice provides specialized and multidisciplinary care in the setting of a leading medical institution for patients with all types of lymphomas. We strive to deliver the best possible standard of care, and take pride in our comprehensive clinical research program that provides access to state-of-the-art novel agents and combination treatments that continue to transform care for lymphoma patients, often years before they become widely available elsewhere. With a research background in tumor immunology and vascular medicine, my clinical research has been focused on developing new immunotherapy-based treatments that target the tumor microenvironment for a variety of lymphoma subtypes, including rare diseases such as mantle cell lymphoma and T-cell lymphoma. Another focus of mine is to develop low-intensity biologic-based treatments that minimize side effects and maximize quality-of-life. I believe in personalized, compassionate, and informed care that is tailored to each individual patient's needs.

Dr Ruan and her pa Jakie, pulled me thru my cancer. jakie gave me hope and strength, and dr. ruan gave me the correct treatment to get rid of this cance.r thank you both of you
Brooklyn, NY |
Dr. Ruan and her team have given me outstanding care for my leukemia during the past four years. She takes special care to explain the meaning of the results from multiple diagnostic tests. I am a working patient, and so Dr. Ruan helped choose treatments and scheduling them in a way that interfered the least possible with my work and life. When a newly developed immunotherapy became available, she helped negotiate with my insurer payment for a treatment approach that was personalized for me
in East Williston, NY |
I found Dr. Ruan to be an excellent diagnostician. She determined the best treatment plan for me and also through her due diligence found a cancerous non-smokers tumor in my left lung lobe. As she detected it early, I had surgery, and cancerous tumor was removed before it spread. She determined the best treat for my non- hodgekins lymphoma and followed appropriately with tests to determine that I am in remission. At every office visit I and my husband felt very confident with her expertise.
in Montvale, NJ |
Very competent. Well prepared. Excellent rapport with patient. Communicates very well and answers all questions patiently. Spends the appropriate amount of time with patient. Excellent professional. Highly recommend.
New York, NY |
Dr. Ruan took very good care of me during a very difficult time. I have only the nicest things to say about her.
in New York, NY |
I have been Dr. Ruan's patient for 5 years, since I was diagnosed with lymphoma. I was first impressed at her ability to explain complex, scientific information so that I could easily understand my condition and diagnosis. She's easy to speak with and I feel confident that I'm receiving the best care possible. I'm in remission and definitely give her the credit.
in New Jersey |
Dr. Ruan is the consummate professional in her field. She is extremely well-versed in various lymphoma conditions, new treatments, and access to clinical trials if available. I have been under her care for 18 months and exceptional progress has been made in my rare type of lymphoma.
New York, NY |
Dr. Ruan has been my oncologist for the past 7 years. During each visit, Dr. Ruan outlined the immediate and future treatment plan. No question was irrelevant and the answers had no time limit. The Doctor has the ability to simplify the most complex subject in order that both my family and I can understand the treatment plan. This professionalism is rendered with her remarkable compassion. Her support staff is sensational. New York, March 17, 2017.
in New York, NY |
She is not only extremely knowledgeable and up on the latest research, she is also unusually kind, empathic, communicative, and responsive to questions. When I emailed her a question at night or over the weekend, with the expectation of receiving a response no sooner than the next work day, I was often surprised by getting a response right back. Her treatment saved my life, but in addition, I had someone who helped guide me thru the inevitably difficult experience of chemotherapy.
