A Hematologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the blood.
A few of the blood disorders that our physicians specialize in include the following:
- Von Willebrand disease
- Myeloproliferative disorders
- Benign bone marrow and lymph node disorders
- Leukemia syndromes
Dr. Thomas Summers or Dr. Yinong Liu may order several blood tests to help check for certain diseases and conditions. Specific blood tests can also help provide information that tells your physician how well organs like your kidneys, liver and heart are working and show how well you respond to the treatments they may have ordered. The tests will help our doctors diagnose specific blood disorders and diseases.
