Bone marrow transplant is a lengthy and complicated treatment. With too much information too quickly, patients can become lost. My entire practice revolves around guiding my patients, step-by-step. This balance of providing comfort and support while delivering information helps me build the patient's trust.
Bringing a patient through the bone marrow transplant process is difficult and harrowing, but it's also incredibly rewarding. Treatment can be very hard on the body, and some patients can become so empty inside. I can't wait for the day that they’re on the other side, and the treatment is working and they're improving. Watching a patient go through recovery, the color comes back in their face, the energy comes back to them and they go on with their lives — it's one of the most gratifying things I could ever ask for.
