I am a hematologist with expertise in coagulation disorders, hemoglobinopathies and general non-malignant hematology. I chose this field because I find hematology intellectually challenging. My approach to patient care is to hopefully make a difference in my patients' lives, one patient at a time. I value my patients and do my best to provide them with compassion and respect, as well as apply my expertise and best judgment to their particular health issue. Most important, I build long-term relationships with my patients during the management of their life-altering diseases. I am always upfront with my patients – together, we make collaborative decisions regarding their best possible treatment options and care.
