Care Philosophy

Information is the best way to put someone at ease. When they know what to expect, and they trust in you are doing for them, it makes the whole process much, much easier for the patient. The treatment that we have to give for acute leukemia is very intensive. And it can be very taxing on the patient physically, mentally, emotionally. And so I feel that it's my job as the doctor to guide them through this process and try to make it as smooth as possible by giving them as much information as I can about their disease. And then giving them support emotionally - that's probably the most important part of what I do.

in Wheeling, IL |
Dr.Larson explained my condition very well and this was a 2nd opinion, she stated the care I received so far was correct, which put me at ease. Then she informed me of a clinical trial going on at Rush in great detail in a way I could understand. At the end she made sure all my questions were explained and gave me copies of the trial and all blood test which it could take back to my Doctor to talk over. She did not push me to make a decision and in fact told me talk it over with family & Doc's.

Very thorough, spent a lot of time listening and then explaining my issue and the plan for evaluation and treatment.
