I see a lot of patients that have a variety of blood disorders — benign and malignant. I somehow felt that those types of patients are the ones that need the most from their healthcare provider. And I wanted to be that healthcare provider, and do what I can to make their life a little bit easier.
Recently I started focusing basically on the myelodisplastic and myeloproliferative neoplasms. And actually we have a clinic that targets this type of patient in particular.
Knowledge puts people at ease. I really think so because once you sort of talk to them about what you plan to do, and layout the plan of care to them and to their family members, and answer every possible question they have, somehow things roll much easier. And so I think a great deal of what we do is trying to listen, and trying to answer questions and simply provide education.
