Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lee "It is a privilege to take care of patients with blood disorders.  Each patient is different, each blood disorder is different, and I believe treatment approaches should be tailored to the individual patient.  At the Weill Cornell Leukemia Program, we work as a team to recommend treatment options for each patient.  We have a number of novel therapeutic options for blood disorders, and we work closely with the scientists at the leukemia program to study each and every patients' disorder to tailor treatments.  Treatment for blood disorders is a unique journey, and I am privileged to be a part of the journey!"

Dr. Lee was the first Dr. I saw at my initial visit after finding out I had AML. He was kind, caring and gave me the support and encouragement I needed to move forward. I can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Lee and Ayilet and the rest of the staff.
