Judith Marcus, MD has been a pediatric hematologist-oncologist for more than 25 years, with a specialty in the care of children and adolescents with leukemia or lymphoma. The diagnosis of a child's cancer can be devastating for families. She works closely with families to support them as they deal with the diagnosis and to design a plan of care personalized for each child. Dr. Marcus also provides palliative care to support psychosocial needs, provide comfort, and enhance the quality of life for patients and their families-from the moment of diagnosis and throughout the experience of cancer.

Dr. Marcus chose this field because it provides her the ability to support families during a challenging time while addressing their complex medical and psychosocial needs.
