About

Professional Statement

Dr. Birchfield traveled from the Arizona Cancer Center to Seattle in 1991. Both his father and grandfather were physicians in Seattle, so returning to Washington was like coming home. According to Dr. Birchfield, "To be a good oncologists, you need to be a good internist first - a good all-around doctor as well as a cancer specialist." He does everything he can to make each patient more comfortable both physically and emotionally, as they are of equal importance. When not in the clinic, Dr. Birchfield enjoys being with his family, participating in sports, outdoor activities and coaching his children's athletic teams.
