Yan Zhao, MD, specializes in hematology and general oncology. His professional interests include head/neck malignancies, genitourinary malignancies, melanoma and benign/malignant hematologic disorders.
Like many families faced with a cancer diagnosis, he has had many close family members impacted by this disease. As such, treating cancer is an important motivator, especially helping others in the way his family has been helped. Open, honest, direct and respectful, he uses a holistic, individualized approach to care.
In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family, exploring Greensboro with his children, playing tennis or sharing a meal with family and friends.
“I get to know my patients as unique, interesting individuals. I let that understanding guide my long-term management of their illness and their health. I strive to thoughtfully but aggressively treat disease and continue with my patients as we tackle new challenges or celebrate treatment milestones.” – Yan Zhao, MD
