Biography

James Mason, MD, is a hematologist and oncologist who has been in practice for over 26 years. Dr. Mason has a special interest in blood and bone marrow transplantation. He believes in taking a collaborative approach to medicine, and is part of a large, integrated system of physicians, nurses, pharmacists and specialists — all dedicated to providing excellent patient care.


In addition to his experience with therapy programs for breast cancer and certain solid tumors, Dr. Mason performs blood and marrow stem cell transplantation for patients with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, multiple myeloma, acute and chronic leukemia and other diseases of the blood and bone marrow. His research focus is on acute leukemias and computational biology.
