Clinical Interests
I enjoy taking care of patients with all types of cancer and blood disorders. My background is in the treatment of skin cancers such as melanoma and I provide specialized care for those patients who have been diagnosed with skin cancer, past or present.

Care Philosophy
Dr. Weight moved to the Denver area to establish a practice closer to his family. He believes that his patients are an extension of that family and he takes great care to foster meaningful relationships with anyone under his care. He takes pride in helping patients and their families understand the disease process so that they may make informed decisions that fit their personal goals.

Public Speaking
Yes
I speak nationally on behalf of ACCC and the Society of Immunotherapy in Cancer. I speak on issues relating to immunotherapy in the treatment of cancer, managing side effects of cancer immunotherapy, treatment of skin cancers, and challenges facing oncology practices in the evolving landscape of cancer therapy.
