Cindy Varga, MD has clinical and research experience treating an array of hematologic malignancies including acute and chronic leukemia, lymphoma, and plasma cell dyscrasias. Under the mentorship of Dr. Ray Comenzo, Dr. Varga will focus her clinical expertise and research efforts in the field of multiple myeloma and AL amyloidosis at Tufts MC. In addition to ambulatory clinics, her clinical responsibilities will include attending on the Hematology/Oncology inpatient consult service, as well as on the inpatient hematology wards.
Dr. Varga received her medical degree in 2007 from the University of Montreal, and then went on to complete her training in Internal Medicine and a fellowship in Hematology at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. She also completed an advanced fellowship with a focus in multiple myeloma at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Prior to joining Tufts MC, Dr. Varga was Assistant Professor of Medicine at Boston University and a full-time Hematology/Oncology faculty member at Boston Medical Center since 2014. Dr. Varga is ABIM certified in Internal Medicine and has her FRCPC in both Internal Medicine and Hematology.
When Dr. Varga's not in her white lab coat, she is often training for some sort of event, whether that be a half marathon, a bike-a-thon or a triathlon. She also loves painting and doing theater.
