Care Philosophy

Nothing matters more to me than delivering state-of-the-art medical treatments while providing compassionate care. I take pride in relating complicated diseases and treatments and making them understandable for my patients. In doing so, we can truly be partners in personalizing treatment plans. Like so many others at the University of Minnesota, I am driven to discover new therapies for the life-threatening complications of blood cancer and its treatment.
