About Me

Conditions I specialize in
  • Cellular Therapy
  • Hematology
  • Medical Oncology

Dr. Girnius discovered a fascination for medicine while in college. He finds hematology to be especially rewarding because he can usually make a significant impact on patients who are sick, rapidly improving their lives through treatment or even a cure. He is excited about the tremendous improvements in his field, where life expectancy has increased dramatically over the last decade.

With experience as both a medical center staff physician and an assistant professor of hematology, Dr. Girnius sees patients for blood cancers, especially multiple myeloma,lymphoma and chronic leukemia.  He is currently Medical Director of the celluar therapy program at Good Samaritan Hospital.  The use of cellular therapy, including autologous stem cell transplantation and chimeric antigen receptor T cell therapy allow TriHealth to have a platform to provide cutting edge therapy for blood cancers.

Dr. Girnius likes to build long-term relationships with his patients. He promotes a relaxed and open environment where patients can trust him with any concerns. He encourages patients to consider and discuss their goals of care with their loved ones. He believes in serving as an advocate for his patients when additional treatment won't achieve their goals.

Dr. Girnius is married and has a daughter and son. He has volunteered with amyloidosis support groups and speaks at multiple myeloma support groups.

      Dr Girnius and his entire staff are tremendous. They almost make me feel blessed to have cancer. They keep me well informed as well as making me feel comfortable in all aspects of my treatment.
