Medical Oncologist and Hematologist

About

Patient physician relationship is the most important part of medical care. Knowing more, I can create a tailored treatment plan that best fits the needs of the patient.

Fellowship:

Special Interests:The patient-physician relationship is unique in the field of oncology since we tend to meet our patients during a stressful and grave period but continue to care for them through many ups and downs. The relationship that is built with each patient and family over time is very important to me. The specialty of oncology continues to advance with science and technology working together to allow for more and more options for patients which I think also drew me to the field.

Board Certification:Medical Oncology, Hematology

Family:

Personal Interests:I enjoyed science classes from a young age onward, so pursuing a career in health care, where I could both help people and focus on the sciences, seemed like a natural fit. During high school, I heard about the 6 year program at UMKC and how it was tailored to early patient care. I decided that would be the ideal path for what I was looking for and a career in medicine.
