Peter Riedell, MD

Associate Professor of Medicine

Peter Riedell, MD, specializes in the care of adults with lymphomas and chronic lymphocytic leukemia. In particular, he has a special interest in the use of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy in the treatment of these conditions.
As a clinical researcher, Dr. Riedell serves as the principal investigator on several national and international clinical trials evaluating the role of targeted therapies, stem cell transplantation and cellular therapy in the treatment of lymphoma. He has been heavily involved in the development and implementation of therapies which harness a patient’s own immune system to fight cancer. His research aims to better characterize and enhance the safety and effectiveness of cellular therapy in order to improve patient outcomes.

Dr. Riedell holds roles on several national committees related to lymphoma and cellular therapy, and he is active in both patient and physician education. He also serves on the editorial board for peer-reviewed journals and is a member of the American Society of Hematology (ASH), American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and the American Society of Transplantation and Cellular Therapy (ASTCT).

About Our Star Ratings and Comments:

Randomly selected patients are sent patient satisfaction surveys after their visits. We get thousands of survey responses each year. The responses are used to improve patient experience and recognize staff members for the care they provide. Patient survey responses are also used to make star ratings for each provider.

For the star ratings and comments, all feedback on the provider web page is posted as it was given from patients. Comments that do not apply, risk patient privacy, or are not appropriate are not posted. Star ratings and comments come from a number of survey questions. A star rating is not given if a provider only has a small number of survey responses.
