“Everyone here cares about our patients. We truly do our best to care about their treatments, of course, but also about them as people. ”

— Zach

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

I enjoy getting to know my patients, and I want them to feel heard and cared for. I do my best to be the type of provider I would want to see, learning about each of my patients as people and not only focusing on their cancer. I know people are going through more than we know, so I try to make our visits enjoyable, not just something they have to do as part of their treatment.

What sets the care apart at Fred Hutch?

We offer the most advanced and up-to-date treatments and clinical trials to make sure we are providing patients with the very best care possible.

Provider Background

I am a certified physician assistant who sees patients at the South Lake Union Clinic.

In oncology, we see our patients frequently, so we get to know them and form deep relationships. While we treat our patients, we care for the whole family. I love my job and feel lucky I get to be a part of so many people's lives.
