Dr. Goldberg on Precision Medicine in Hematologic Malignancies
Stuart L. Goldberg, MD
Stuart L. Goldberg, MD, chief medical officer, John Theurer Cancer Center, discusses precision medicine for patients with hematologic malignancies.
The goal of precision medicine is to give the right patient the right treatment, explains Goldberg. If the patient receives the right therapy, it will make their quality and longevity of life better, and no money will be wasted, Goldberg adds.
It has been estimated that one-third of medicine is wasted, says Goldberg. If physicians use precision medicine properly, their patients will benefit, see the true value of the drug, and will not receive lines of ineffective therapies.
