Patient Experience with Dr. Nance
Get to know Hematologist Dr. Danielle Nance, who serves patients in Gilbert, Arizona.
Dr. Nance is a highly trained hematologist in practice with Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center at Banner Gateway Medical Center in Gilbert, Arizona.
Seeking adults and geriatrics, she seeks to bring accessible, expert care to each of her patients. She believes in advocacy for patients with rare diseases, access to care and insurance, and improving the patient experience.
At the age of 2, Dr. Nance was diagnosed with moderate hemophilia A, after a joint bleed in her knee. Until then, her constant bruises and oozing cuts were a mystery. Her parents were even investigated by child protective services.
She was in fifth grade when she decided to become a physician. A bookshelf in her classroom was filled with first-aid manuals, and she couldn’t wait to read them. Realizing she wanted to be a doctor and choosing her specialty were one and the same decision. “When I wanted to become a physician, I wanted to become a hematologist” expressed Dr. Nance.
A major motivator to join the specialty was to prevent others from having the negative experiences she’d had. “I encountered doubt and resistance from some providers when I was younger” explained Dr. Nance. Some would insist she had von Willebrand disease. “Or they would tell me I was a carrier of hemophilia and therefore I couldn’t be a bleeder.”
In 2005, Dr. Nance graduated with her medical degree from Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. She then went on to perform her residency in internal medicine at Virginia Mason Medical Center in 2009, her fellowship in hemophilia at the University of Washington School of Medicine in 2011, and her fellowship in hematology at the University of Utah in 2014.
Subsequent to her education, she attained board certification in hematology and internal medicine through the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). The ABIM is a physician-led, non-profit, independent evaluation organization driven by doctors who want to achieve higher standards for better care in a rapidly changing world.
Overall, Dr. Nance aims to treat patients the way she would want to be treated. She addresses their immediate needs and concerns. Most important, she educates them about available treatments, without forcing them in any direction. “Taking what I thought was my biggest weakness and using that as a strength and a gift that I can share with others has been one of the great joys in my life” she said.
Hematology is the branch of medicine concerned with the study of the cause, prognosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases related to blood. Hematologists are medical practitioners who specialize in treating conditions of the blood. Their primary responsibilities include testing and diagnosing patients, treating diseases such as anemia or hemophilia, and prescribing medications or dietary advice.
Outside of the office, Dr. Nance and her family like being outdoors; hiking, biking, and exploring nature. She enjoys reading SciFi and biographies, as well as baking cookies.
