About

Bio

I am a general hematologist in solo private practice but serve on the voluntary faculty at Baylor College of Medicine and The Methodist Hospital. I received all of my medical training at Baylor, where I served as a Chief Resident and graduated "cum laude". I am interested in all aspects of hematology and take care of patients with bleeding and clotting problems, hematologic malignancies such as leukemia and lymphoma, and any other sort of hematologic disorder.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
