Born in California, Dr. Hyman has lived in Texas since the fourth grade. During medical school in Houston and residency in Cincinnati, mentors in Hematology-Oncology impressed him in their care of the whole patient and their families.  This led to a return to the Texas Medical Center for fellowship in Medical Oncology.  Dr. Hyman spent the first 28 years of his career in Tyler, Texas, practicing general adult Medical Oncology.  He was instrumental at developing and opening the UT Health Northeast MD Anderson Cancer Center, the first full MD Anderson Network partnership in Texas, and becoming the inaugural Medical Director. 

He comes to UT Southwestern to return to the bedside and to full time patient care, as a dedicated Oncology Hospitalist for the Solid Tumor Inpatient Service at William P. Clements, Jr. University Hospital, capitalizing on his vast experience in care of patients with cancers in all disease sites. 

Dr. Hyman and his wife enjoy exploring the Dallas area, especially visiting antique stores, and spending time spoiling their 3 grandkids.
