She also received her Bachelor of Science summa cum laude in Molecular and Cell Biology with an honors thesis on the expression of iNOS in mouse cardiac transplant grafts. She then did her medical training in Tucson and Phoenix. She moved to Denver in 2007 for her medical oncology fellowship at the University of Colorado. After finishing fellowship, Dr. Gregory was the first blood and marrow transplant fellow at CBCI and then joined the practice. She has been recognized by the house staff for excellence and dedication to teaching and by nursing staff as a Physician Colleague of the Year. She is know the director for the BMT Fellowship Program as well as the Cancer Care Committee Co-Chair. She is on the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Medical Board as well as a member of many local and national committees and medical societies. Dr. Gregory’s research interest is in the treatment of multiple myeloma. Her research has been presented at many national meetings. She is the local primary investigator for many clinical studies and is a member of the Sarah Cannon Research Institute Multiple Myeloma Committee and the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Multiple Myeloma Committee. "When I was little, my dad (who is a physician) took my brother and I on hospital rounds. I think based on that experience -at the ripe age of 6- I announced to my parents that I was going to be a doctor. Throughout high school and undergrad, he took me to the local Tumor Board meeting. I thought the entire aspect of oncology was fascinating but wasn't sure I would be able to support patients with potential for such intense grief and loss. I then chose a medical oncologist as my clinical preceptor during the first two years of medical school. I fell in love with the patients and the relationship he the oncologist was able to develop with the patient and their families. Once I was in internal medicine residency at Banner Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix, I was able to rotate on the BMT service and again things clicked. I was a matched for fellowship in Denver and decided to enjoy seasons as well as the fantastic life Colorado has to offer."
As a physician specializing in blood cancers and blood/marrow transplant, I have the opportunity to offer patients potential cures from their cancer or live with their disease and not die from it. I love participating in research, but being with patients is what drives me. I'm so fortunate to have found CBCI where I can do both. I've been on both sides of cancer as my mother passed from acute leukemia and I strive to be the doctor she and my family needed blending medical expertise and matching that with patient goals and quality of life.I believe that patients place an amazing amount of trust in their oncologist to guide them through their treatments. My goal is to earn that trust being not only a doctor, but a teacher as well. I work to ensure my patients understand their disease and treatments. I strive to ensure I understand a patient's goals and fears and help guide treatment decisions that honor those values.

What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?
Healthgrades reports details of a doctor’s malpractice history when the doctor has at least one closed medical malpractice claim within the last five years, even if he or she no longer practices in that state.
For which states does Healthgrades collect malpractice history?
Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia.

If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
Healthgrades reports non-disciplinary board action history from for the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
