My dream is to become a renowned expert in the field of hematologic malignancies and bone marrow transplantation. I have been honored to work at the University of Kentucky Hospital and serve the Commonwealth. Since I started my fellowship, I have fallen fell in love with Kentucky. The kindness, appreciativeness and gratitude of its people, the endless beautiful landscapes, and the amazing culture and history are just few of the reasons I call Kentucky my new home.
Blood cancer affects not only the physical and spiritual health of the patient, but also all of the family. Treatment can be very complicated and usually lasts months to years. This can be very overwhelming for the patients and their families. My philosophy is to treat every patient as a family member and learn their story. Sometimes busy doctors are occupied with labs, imaging and test results and forget that value. Behind every patient is a story of life, hope and love. Learning that story creates an unbreakable bond and a long-lasting relationship.
