I’ve been interested in medicine for as long as I can remember. My medical school experiences with the children solidified my feeling that pediatrics was the area I related to best.
Similarly, my exposure to pediatric and adult hematology/oncology patients and physicians in medical school confirmed that I wanted to work with these patients and colleagues.
As a bone marrow transplant physician, I believe that each patient is unique. I use a cooperative approach to treatment, in which I partner with the treatment team, the patient and their family.
My research involves finding treatments for and prevention of viral infections in immunocompromised patients.
When I’m not treating patients or involved in research, I enjoy spending time with my family.
