I enjoy working with my patients and having close contact with them. We often form trusted relationships and our life experiences intermingle: their life is part of my life, and my life is part of their life. I am open-minded when it comes to non-traditional therapies. My focus is on making my patients feel and live better, so I will try whichever options are in their best interests. I participate in clinical trials to improve our treatment strategies. In addition, I actively participate in the National Comprehensive Cancer Network's treatment guidelines to enhance clinical treatment planning. I have published extensively in the field of Hematology and Oncology with over 70 publications, presentations and one book, and have lectured internationally.
