“Being diagnosed with cancer and facing cancer treatment can be a very stressful journey to patients, both physically and emotionally,” Dr. Zhang says. “My role as an oncologist is to empower patients with knowledge about their disease and treatment options, and provide individualized, patient-centered, and evidence-based care to the best of my abilities. I treat every patient like a family member, and I am fully dedicated to serving my patients’ needs and guiding them through this tough journey.”

Dr. Zhang is an honors graduate from Texas A&M University who received his medical degree from the University of Texas—Houston Medical School in Houston, Texas. He completed both his residency in internal medicine and his fellowship in hematology and medical oncology at the Mayo Graduate School of Medicine in Rochester, Minn. There he also received an assistant professor of medicine and oncology academic ranking.

Dr. Zhang is board certified in Internal Medicine and has presented his scholarly research at the American Society of Hematology, American Society of Clinical Oncology, Genitourinary Cancers Symposium, European Society of Medical Oncology and Society of Neuro-Oncology annual meetings. He has also co-authored published scholarly articles on his insights into myelofribrosis pathophysiology and treatment and also a novel prognostic model for patients with sarcomatoid renal cell carcinoma, among other topics.

In his spare time, Dr. Zhang enjoys long distance running, hiking, and spending time with his wife and two children.
