I am a clinical researcher and medical oncologist in the division of cell therapy and hematologic malignancies (blood cancers). I mainly specialize in treating leukemias and lymphomas. Ive been at Duke for 40 years. Patients usually come to me after a primary care provider has noticed something irregular with the patients blood. My role is to look at the blood and the bone marrow (the factory where the blood is made) and work with the patient and my colleagues to come up with an accurate diagnosis and develop a treatment plan for the patient. Other than a brief period when I wanted to be a fireman Ive always wanted to be a doctor. I hurt my knee playing football in high school and the great treatment I received during that episode confirmed my desire to be a doctor. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my wife children and grandchildren.
