I treat patients who have benign diseases of the blood, such as sickle cell anemia, as well as people who are fighting cancer. Whatever the problem, the overall approach is the same – speak to each patient about the various treatments available and work with them to develop a treatment plan designed to both effectively target their illness while maintaining and optimizing their daily lifestyle.
