Dr. Markowitz was voted "Top Doctors" in Seattle Metropolitan Magazine (2011, 2012)
Nearly 4,500 physicians, nurses and physician assistants in King, Kitsap and Snohomish counties nominated colleagues they would choose to treat themselves and their loved ones.
Dr. Markowitz was drawn to Puget Sound Cancer Centers' community-based practice style in July of 1999.
Having come from much larger centers such as the University of Washington and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Centers, this held particular importance. Dr. Markowitz was originally drawn to oncology because he believed the doctor-patient relationship that develops would lead him to grow in his own knowledge and compassion.
The complexity and changing nature of both hematology and oncology is something Dr. Markowitz enjoys. He continues to appreciate this era of rapidly expanding knowledge, allowing him to bring new insights and treatments to patients on an individual basis.
Dr. Markowitz enjoys recreational basketball and coaching for both of his sons' basketball teams as well as wakeboarding, skiing, playing hearts and losing to his sons at Texas Hold'em.
"It's the patients themselves who inspire me with the depth and dignity of their responses to life's struggles."
