About Yasmeen Rauf, MD

The majority of my clinical practice is seeing patients with glioblastoma. These patients are sick and require prompt diagnosis and treatment. Due to the limited options for these patients, they also require cutting-edge treatments. I believe in personalized medicine for glioblastoma where treatments should depend not only on the patient’s age and performance status, but also the molecular and genetic profile of their tumor.

The majority of my clinical practice is seeing patients with glioblastoma. These patients are sick and require prompt diagnosis and treatment. Due to the limited options for these patients, they also require cutting-edge treatments. I believe in personalized medicine for glioblastoma where treatments should depend not only on the patient’s age and performance status, but also the molecular and genetic profile of their tumor. For me, the top priority is always patient care, to treat every patient like they were my family. These patients and their families need compassion and a treating physician who can be a friend and guide. I want my patients to think of me first whenever they have any medical, social or financial issue that arises from their diagnosis. I also believe that patients need choices and autonomy to choose the treatment that is best for them. I am there not only to offer treatments that are available at my center, but also to talk about treatments that may be available across the country or globe.
