Dr. Dinali chose oncology as his specialty for a very personal reason.
“When I was a child, my siblings and I lost our 39 year-old mother to cancer,” Dr. Dinali explained. He decided at the young age of twelve to help find a cure for cancer to prevent this from happening again to other children. “Since that moment, I have wanted to be an oncologist who cares about his patients and their families. I have always been encouraged and motivated by that strong personal commitment.”
Dr. Dinali considers Dr. Marc Lippman at the University of Miami his professional mentor.
“From Dr. Lippman, I received a high level of standardized training,” said Dr. Dinali. “I learned from him how to translate cancer molecular biology into data that can be interpreted at bedside, and how to best apply clinical trials results to patients’ care.”
Dr. Dinali said his patients can expect him to use all the necessary tools to provide the best care possible.
“My goals are to give full attention and provide personal assurance to my patients and their families,” said Dr. Dinali. “I will collect and obtain full data on their disease, educate and counsel them, know and study the molecular background of their cancer, and provide up-to-date treatment.”
Dr. Dinali chose PMC to be part of a growing oncology team.
“PMC is a work place with positive values that is providing hematology/oncology care to its patients with commitment to excellence in an area with higher cancer rates compared to other areas in the country,” Dr. Dinali explained. “It is a great privilege for me to be part of the hematology/oncology team providing the regional cancer care to the people served by PMC.”
His hobbies are swimming and volleyball.
