WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

As a hematologist specializing in the area of benign hematology, I treat a variety of non-cancerous blood conditions, especially thrombosis and hemostasis (clotting and bleeding disorders). I have additional training and expertise in that area beyond standard hematology fellowship. I also treat anemia and benign disorders affecting platelet counts. I have extensive expertise in treating people with parenteral iron preparations. This includes people who undergo gastric bypass surgery and can no longer absorb iron obtained through their diet. I am very fond of caring for women with benign hematological disorders during pregnancy. I also participate in plasma exchange service. I find the investigative and diagnostic challenge a career in hematology offers incredibly stimulating. However, my true gratification comes from spending time with my patients, not only treating their symptoms, but also educating them about their conditions and therapies. I enjoy equipping them to be strong advocates for themselves on their health journey.
