Dr. Kris' Care Philosophy

I am a medical oncologist who specializes in the care of persons with cancers arising in the chest: including lung cancer, thymoma, mediastinal tumors, and cancer of unknown primary site. My research interests include tests for new anticancer treatments, the discovery of medicines that specifically attack lung cancer, multimodality therapy (using surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy together to destroy cancers), and better ways to control physicial symptoms caused by cancer and cancer treatment. I am particularly interested in finding ways to select the best treatments for persons with cancer based on clinical factors and the molecular characteristics of their tumor specimens.

    Dr. Kris is a brilliant, compassionate Dr. I an an unknown primary cancer (favoring the lung) which was mindboggeling for me, but Dr. Kris assured me that although rare he had experience in these cancers. 5 years later I had a spot on my lung ( a different cancer) Dr. Kris sent me to Dr. Baines who did a lung resection now I am almost a year out of that. It's a journey follow up on your appointments (scans etc..) These Doctors are your best chance of living.
