Care Philosophy

I am a medical oncologist and hematologist who specializes primarily in disorders such as multiple myeloma amyloidosis POEMS syndrome Waldenstrm's macroglobulinemia plasma cell leukemia and monoclonal gammopathy of uncertain significance. I take care of adult patients of all ages but I have a clinical and research interest in the elderly and/or frail patients with these disorders. Aside from directly taking care of patients I lead clinical trials in these conditions as well. Outside the hospital I have a wife and three boys. I'm also a Cub Scout den leader and I play ice hockey for fun.

Patient Comments (1)
Durham, NC |
His communication was abrupt at times, did not listen well to patient or family needs and concerns when asking detailed questions about my care he seemed defensive in his responses and at times uncaring. I believe these problems with communication did effect my overall care and outcomes, as a result I decided to change physicians. Since changing, my clinical presentation has improved as well as my confidence about my care. There's a difference when a physician talks at you vs with you.
