What do you like about IHTC and its approach to care?
IHTC is this perfect blend of academia and clinical practice, allowing for both the care of patients with and research of bleeding disorders. This allows patients to have access to the cutting edge of medicine, new therapies that can revolutionize care and wholly change lives. Additionally, the resources here allow for a comprehensive approach to patient care that includes genetics, social work, physical therapy, nursing, dentistry, and research that work in conjunction with the physician. No aspect of patient care is forgotten. Lastly, everyone here shares the same mission and continually strives towards that objective: high quality patient directed care to better the lives of those with hematologic conditions.
What inspires you about your work?
I think that in today’s world we sometimes lose perspective on things. In managing patients with chronic and life-limiting illnesses, it forces me to ponder on what’s important in life. My patients help provide me perspective in my own life through their struggles. Also, practicing medicine can be like unraveling a puzzle. The algorithmic approach to complex medical issues is a thought exercise without equal.
How would you describe your approach to patient care?
I hope to provide honest, high quality care that aligns with their goals. The world of medicine is a scary place, and seeing doctors can be anxiety-inducing. People need help navigating that world. It brings me joy to be their guide and help assuage their fears. In the end, I want people to walk out of IHTC proud to call me their doctor.
