I’m interested in treating and preventing infections in people who have cancer and whose immune systems are suppressed because of cancer or its treatment (immunocompromised). As the whole world has come to understand in recent years, we are learning new things about infectious diseases every day. This has come with challenges and difficulties, but we are also making amazing progress in terms of treatments and vaccines. We are always finding new tools to fight infectious diseases and help patients.
We have world-class leaders and research that is at the forefront of cancer care. This includes those who are working to understand infectious diseases — how they make people sick and how they spread. When I see a patient in the hospital, for example, the experts who are pioneering new treatments and ready to help in a difficult case are a phone call away.
I am a physician who sees patients at the South Lake Union Clinic and at UW Medical Center – Montlake.
