“I want to make a difference in people’s lives and provide a smooth, comforting experience for patients.”

— Dr. Phelps

What do you hope it's like for a patient to work with you?

I know patients do not enjoy waiting around or hiccups in their care, so being able to provide a seamless experience for them is important to me. I was drawn to this area of practice for the patient interaction and the impact we can have.

What brought you to Fred Hutch?

Patients seeking care at Fred Hutch are going to be in excellent hands. It’s where I’d want my family to go.
