Overall Patient Satisfaction Rating

4.8 out of 5




I am an oncologist treating patients with blood cancers. My areas of expertise include hematology, geriatric oncology and multiple myeloma. I serve as associate professor in the clinical department of internal medicine and I am the Director of the Blood Cancer and Aging Program. I conduct research on biologic age – rather than chronological age – to better understand a patient's ability to tolerate aggressive cancer therapies. Uncovering specific biomarkers to determine biologic age is challenging, but I'm confident this knowledge will ultimately lead to increased patient survival and improved quality of life. I was rated in the top 10 percent of physicians in the nation for patient satisfaction in 2017.

At the OSUCCC – James, we are committed to addressing the specific needs of older adults with cancer. We recently opened a Geriatric Hematology clinic that uses innovative aging research and subspecialist consultants to provide patients with personalized care.

Nationally, I am panel member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Older Adult Oncology Guidelines, Cancer and Aging Research Group, and I also take part in an international investigation of age and bone marrow transplant outcomes. My research is funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) National Cancer Institute (NCI), Alliance Clinical Trials Network and NCCN. My work has been published in several medical journals including Journal of Geriatric Oncology, Clinical Cancer Research and Journal of Clinical Oncology.

The OSUCCC – James is truly special. We strive every day to provide state of the art care while focusing on each person’s specific cancer. We’re all focused on the goal of one day living in a world free of cancer.
