Dr. Butros' Care Philosophy

Our mission is to provide comprehensive, consultative medical management in concert with the patient's primary care provider for children and young adults with a blood disorder or a history of cancer. After 20 years of caring for kids with cancer, I firmly believe in a healing mission. I don't believe that 'fixing the problem' of cancer or a blood disorder is sufficient for healing. I've walked with patients from the day of diagnosis to 20 years after treatment. It's a journey. ?The primary end goal is to enhance the quality of life and overall health of all patients coming to this program in order that they achieve their goals and thrive.
