Philosophy of care
I believe that building a caring and trusting relationship with each patient and their parents is key to providing individualized care.

Why Dr. Korman went into medicine
I am a childhood cancer survivor and understand how it feels to be a scared patient in the hospital. I had amazing care from my oncologists, and they inspired me to want to help other children who are sick.

Favorite advice to give patients
It is never too early to think about your future and what you want to do with it.

I enjoy spending time water skiing, fishing, swimming and anything else to do with water.
