“One of the joys of my job is helping patients feel heard and understood.”

— Dr. Martin

Why do you choose to work at Fred Hutch?

What I like most about working here is that Fred Hutch exists to provide leading-edge care. I’m surrounded by colleagues who are truly devoted to a deep understanding of the disease process and who generously give of themselves to patients, peers and the scientific community. It’s rewarding to be part of a group whose driving motivation is to improve cancer care — to advance the frontiers of science — over the course of a lifetime.

What do you want patients to know about working with you?

I believe that active listening is fundamental to a productive physician-patient relationship. For example, it’s helpful for me to hear what you know about your health situation. Then I can fill in information gaps or clarify misunderstandings. It’s also important for me to get a sense of what your life is like outside of your illness, what your care goals are, what barriers and issues you face and how much support you have. When you walk out of our appointment, I want you to feel understood, with a firm grasp of what the treatment options are.
