Insurances We Accept
My specialty is treating patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) and other myeloid malignancies. I’m committed to providing individualized care to all of my patients by incorporating supportive treatments and the most up-to-date cancer medications, including clinical trials.

At the OSUCCC – James we have the unique opportunity to access opinions from a variety of cancer specialists all under one roof. We use the latest technologies and therapies to provide specific, targeted treatment for each patient and their particular cancer.

Education is very important to me. I mentor new physicians who are undertaking fellowships at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center as well as junior faculty members. I also serve as a professor of internal medicine for The Ohio State University. I’ve given more than 60 presentations nationally and internationally detailing our research and latest treatments. Additionally, I’ve co-authored more than 90 articles and 80 abstracts in medical publications such as the Journal of Clinical Oncology and Biology of Blood and Marrow Transplantation.

I thoroughly enjoy the collaborative and enthusiastic spirit of The James. Every one here – from the doctors to support staff – is truly dedicated to improving the lives of cancer patients and their families. If someone in my family were to have cancer, this is the only a place in the world where I would want them to receive treatment.
