With You Every Step of The Way

When you’re facing a cancer diagnosis, you want an experienced hematology team with a proven track record.

What is hematology?

Hematology is a specialized medical focus devoted to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of blood diseases. These disorders include both cancerous and noncancerous conditions affecting all aspects of your blood, including:

  • Red and white blood cells
  • Platelets
  • Bone marrow
  • The organs producing blood components, like the spleen

This distinct specialty is closely associated with oncology, which focuses on cancer.

What conditions do hematologists treat?

Hematologists specialize in managing a wide range of conditions, such as:

  • Hemophilia and other bleeding disorders
  • Lymphoma, leukemia, and other blood cancers
  • Conditions requiring stem cell or bone marrow treatments

Having to see a hematologist doesn’t mean you have cancer.

What can I expect from my first hematology appointment?

The first visit with a hematologist can be stressful and overwhelming, so the experienced team at Coastal Cancer Center recommends bringing a friend or family member for support during your first appointment. During your treatment, your hematologist works closely with you to create a relationship built on trust and open dialogue. This commitment ensures you completely understand your diagnosis, and treatment plan, and feel comfortable raising any concerns about your therapy.
Your first hematology appointment might include
  • A comprehensive physical exam
  • Additional diagnostic screenings to help guide your treatment plan
  • Discussions with specialists working with your care team
  • Talking with a financial counselor about costs associated with your treatment and insurance coverage
