Dr. Manda’s areas of expertise are gastrointestinal cancers, which include colorectal, pancreatic, biliary, hepatocellular, gastric and esophageal cancers. He has a focused interest in the field of GI malignancies that includes detection and treatment of colorectal and other gastrointestinal neoplasms.
Malignant hematology is another area of special interest to Dr. Manda and he is a member of the US oncology hematology committee. He is actively involved in both hematology and GI clinical trials through the US Oncology Network Research program.
Dr. Manda believes in a multidisciplinary approach for holistic patient care that includes integrated services such as working with a radiation oncologist, the patients' primary care doctor or specialist, diagnostic imaging, clinical research, genetic counseling, in-house lab work, social worker assistance, nurse navigation, patient support groups, nutrition counseling, and programs for survivorship.
I value getting to know my patients personally. I believe in active collaboration with patients and families to design individualized treatment plans that are based on the latest scientific data and tailored to their unique goals and values. It is important to me that I listen to and communicate with my patients unambiguously, discussing their treatment options and answering their questions in plain language, so that they have a clear understanding of their disease and are able to choose what is best for their needs. I want no patient to leave the office thinking they were rushed through their visit.
Outside work, I try to balance the joy and demands of raising two young girls.
