That’s why this fall, our team will provide care to patients in a new, state-of-the-art facility, offering a variety of treatment options, clinical research trials, and a wide range of supportive services located on the Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital campus in Council Bluffs.|
|Joel Michalski MD, PHD
I have a strong interest in how the immune system interacts with cancer, and how those interactions can be utilized to treat many cancers. The fields of hematology and oncology are complex, and I’m committed to providing the best, high quality care that modern medicine has to offer, along with a sincere desire to treat people, not just a disease.
