What drew you to pediatric hematology?
During my residency, I did a rotation with a pediatric hematologist who became a mentor. My exposure to hematology during my residency sparked my interest and led me to choose the specialty. Later, while researching Von Willebrand disease during my fellowship, I became interested in this disease and its impact on women and girls.
What is your greatest challenge?
Some of my patients live far from Indianapolis, and many of them have complicated medical needs. This can be a major challenge. However, with the use of video technology, I have been able to manage their medical conditions effectively. As a center, we have also increased our outreach clinics so that I can see these patients more often.
How would you describe your approach to patient care?
I thoroughly enjoy the interaction with children and their parents. Training in medicine and reading textbooks teaches you only so much. Each patient is different and medical care has to be personalized. I owe a lot of my knowledge to my patients too, as they have been my teachers, whether it be a rare or a common blood condition.
