Biography

Our center provides access to the full array of resources needed for "comprehensive" cancer care. This includes nutrition, psychosocial support, complementary medicine, rehabilitation, pain management, and other areas. We have developed an outstanding team of physicians (including medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, and others), nurses, physician assistants and related health care personnel in order to optimally serve patients with these disorders.

Our patients recognize the value of this support. The hematopathology group (responsible for diagnosing and evaluating biopsies of lymphomas and other blood cancers) is among the best and largest of any academic medical center. They are widely recognized for their diagnostic and research expertise, and in fact have a significant role in educating other hematopathology specialists.
