Lindsey M. Lyle, M.S., a certified physician assistant at the University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora, offers advice to patients with newly diagnosed myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs).
Lyle is passionate about educating patients and other health care professionals about MPNs, so much that she creates a one-on-one connection with her patients that puts them at ease, wrote her nominator Evelyn Schwandt, who has myelofibrosis and stage 3 ovarian cancer.
Most importantly, Lyle recommends for patients to ask their physicians for resources to better understand their disease within the first few visits, and to never be afraid to ask questions until they fully understand their diagnosis.
