My Specialty and Why I Chose It I am a pediatric hematologist oncologist, or a doctor who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and long term management of children and adolescents with diseases related to the blood, bone marrow, and tumors. I found Pediatric Hematology Oncology attractive because it encompasses the management of complex medical problems while maintaining the long term doctor-patient/family team relationships inherent in pediatrics. My Practice Philosophy I am part of the Pediatric Hematology Oncology team at Kaiser Roseville. We take a strong team based approach to the care of our patients. We do not assign patients among ourselves but work diligently to maintain a strong group approach to care management. I am part of a larger team that includes fellow physicians, a nurse practitioner, nurses, social workers, and child life specialists. We see the patient and family as the other half of our team. The team goal is not only to manage the care of the patient's illness but also to help nurture the maintenance and growth of the patients and families in our care. My Tenure with Kaiser Permanente I have been a part of Kaiser Permanente since March 2006. After working in several different settings including academic and private practice settings, I have found the camaraderie, attention to quality, cooperation among all levels of staff, helpfulness, and overall commitment to patient care to be excellent here. I have especially enjoyed the freedom to care for my patients without untoward interference from outside groups. We are an active member institution of the Childrenâ€™s Oncology Group. On a Personal Noteâ€¦ My outside interests include outdoor and underwater photography, scuba diving, cooking, hiking, spending quality time with my spouse and our Airedale Terrier and Sporgie, origami, and several others.
