The panelist Dr. Pallawi Torka
Dr. Pallawi Torka

Dr. Pallawi Torka is a hematologist-oncologist who cares for patients with various kinds of lymphoma, as well as chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). She thinks of herself as a clinician, researcher, and educator in that order, with her personal mantra being “treat every patient like family.” No two patients are the same, so their treatment plans should not be the same either. When Dr. Torka meets a new patient for the first time, she goes over their whole story in detail and analyzes every detail of their case to ensure that they come up with the best plan of care together. Dr. Torka believes that the best care plans incorporate not only cutting-edge science, but also the patient’s individual beliefs. Hearing “you have cancer” is difficult; Dr. Torka's goal is to walk the complicated and often confusing road with patients and their families, doing everything she can to make the journey easier.
