Biography

Lymphoma is a complex set of diseases that can affect any organ system and I am drawn to the challenge of helping patients battle this challenging disease. Treating a serious illness like lymphoma needs a meticulous review of all aspects of the case, critical thinking, effective communication, while also providing the highest level of compassionate care for patients. While it's important to understand every detail of the disease, I also really focus on understanding the patient and their treatment goals to develop an individualized treatment plan that would improve their quality of life. I strive to ensure that my patients have access to cutting-edge novel therapies through clinical trials. Hence, apart from patient care, I am also involved in clinical research testing of new effective drug combinations in lymphoma.
