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.

Many of our specialty care offices require a referral from primary care for your initial visit, so if you're already an FHN patient you may need to contact your primary care provider for more information. If you're new to FHN or don't have a primary care provider, call the number above and you'll have a primary care appointment before you hang up the phone!* Thank you for choosing FHN!
