Overview

Dr. Thomas M. Fynan became a medical oncologist and hematologist for a reason he calls "strange but true: I wanted to help people." As a medical student, he did a rotation with an amazing doctor. "He was intelligent, compassionate, thoughtful," says Dr. Fynan. "All the things you look for in a physician. And he was an oncologist." Dr. Fynan has tried to bring those same qualities to his patients ever since. Dr. Fynan chose to work at MOH because it is an organization that values those same qualities. "We all strive to provide state-of-the-art care to our patients by keeping abreast of the latest scientific advances," he says, "and we provide truly personal care. We all see our own patients when they are hospitalized, we see them quickly in the office when necessary, and one simple, but important thing: we return phone calls." That close contact between doctor and patient is critical to the care Dr. Fynan provides at MOH. "The more time you spend with patients, gathering information and answering questions," he says, "the better you can take good care of them. I like to learn about them as people, not as a disease: what they enjoy, how they live their lives. I try to find out how they like to receive information and how they make decisions. What is important to them, and what are their goals." While answering his patients’ questions, he also learns from them. "People are capable of remarkable things," he says, "and have far more courage and strength than you can imagine." During his career thus far, Dr. Fynan has seen great advances in cancer treatment and is excited about great advances yet to come. "When I began my career in 1991, most patients with cancer were treated in the hospital because of the severe side effects," he says. "Now, almost everyone is treated in the office and can avoid hospitalization because of advances in controlling nausea, infections, and other complications. It has completely changed the way we care for patients." In the future, he hopes for "less reliance on chemotherapy, and the use of more therapy that is targeted to a particular patient’s cancer." While interested in the broad spectrum of oncology and hematology, Dr. Fynan has a particular interest in prostate cancer and lung cancers. Born in Riverside, a small town in New Jersey, Dr. Fynan now calls Connecticut home. In his free time, he and his partner Bill enjoy their two dogs. He also enjoys music, particularly jazz and opera.
