I am dedicated to providing exceptional patient-centered care.
Hannah Asghari, M.D., is a high-achiever noted for academic scholarship and dedication to her patients. A board-certified physician specializing in hematology and oncology, Dr. Asghari feels “deeply privileged to help guide patients during their most trying times.”
Dr. Asghari is a summa cum laude graduate of University of Florida, where she studied biochemistry and molecular biology. She received her medical degree at UF and continued her training at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, followed by a hematology/oncology fellowship at University of South Florida based at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida.
Dr. Asghari says she’s known “since childhood” that she wanted to be a physician. She’s delighted to join the City of Hope family. “City of Hope,” she said, “is on the cutting edge of research and provides outstanding patient care.”
