About me

Kimberley Doucette, MD, MSc, has joined MedStar Georgetown University Hospital at the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center as a fellowship-trained, board-certified medical oncologist and hematologist who specializes in multiple myeloma.

At MedStar Georgetown, Dr. Doucette specializes in treating all types of plasma cell abnormalities, including:

  • Multiple myeloma
  • AL Amyloidosis
  • Lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma / Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia
  • Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS)
  • Smoldering myeloma

Dr. Doucette earned a master’s degree in epidemiology at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, followed by a medical degree at St. George’s University in Grenada. She completed residency training at MedStar Washington Hospital Center and went on to complete a fellowship in hematology oncology at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. During her final fellowship year, she served as chief fellow in the Department of Hematology and Oncology.

Dr. Doucette’s research interests include plasma cell dyscrasias of all kinds, both cancerous and noncancerous, and related conditions. Her areas of clinical and research focus include multiple myeloma, amyloidosis, MGUS, smoldering myeloma, and Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia/lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma.

She is principal investigator for many of MedStar Georgetown’s multiple myeloma and plasma cell dyscrasia clinical trials, including investigations into multiple myeloma as well as MGUS. Her upcoming trials include refractory multiple myeloma in end-stage renal disease, MGUS associated peripheral neuropathy among others.

Dr. Doucette’s Philosophy of Care

“I am committed to treating each of my patients with respect and dignity. It’s important to me to spend time with my patients, providing compassionate care. At MedStar Georgetown, I hope to give my patients clinical trial opportunities and connect them with the resources they need, so they can get coordinated, comprehensive care at MedStar Georgetown using the latest treatments.

Because blood and marrow transplants are such an important part of treatment for multiple myeloma and related conditions, our department is tightly linked with the blood and marrow transplant team. We have shared clinic space, which enables close collaboration and communication. This streamlines the referral process and gives patients the best chance at an optimal outcome.

Although there is no cure yet for multiple myeloma, with treatment and comprehensive care, patients can typically live active lives. It’s an exciting time to work in myeloma and plasma cell dyscrasias. Research is moving ahead in leaps and bounds, and there are a lot of new treatment options for patients.”
