What Is Hematology?

Hematology is the science or study of blood and blood diseases. All of our cancer care physicians are board-certified in oncology and hematology. Hematology includes the treatment of blood cancers including leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma, but conditions treated by a hematologist are not always related to cancer

Why Do I Need To See A Hematologist? 

If your primary care provider wants you to see a hematologist, that doesn’t mean you have cancer. A hematologist has additional training and education on diseases of the blood. Your primary care provider may feel our hematologists are better suited to treating a variety of blood disorders such as anemia, hemophilia, and blood clots.
