Specialties

Dr. Catherine M Broome has the following 3 specialties

  • Hematology

    A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
    Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
    Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Great Doctor

I was given a diagnosis by another doctor who was rated as one of the best doctors by Washintonian magazine and wanted to get a second opinion from Dr. Broome. The first doc wanted to put me in to chemo immediately using 5 pretty serious drugs so I was thinking that Dr. Broome was just going to rubber stamp the treatment. Not only did she not rubber stamp the treatment,she told me that I did not need any treatment and that I could just wait and see if the disease progressed. Dr. Broome's diagnosis and treatment was confirmed when I went to John Hopkins for a third opinion. Dr. Broome saved me untold pain and suffering ( not to mention expense) and she has been absolutely wonderful to deal with when ever I see her. Great doctor and a wonderful personality to boot. Highest recommendation.

One Star

Scheduling an appointment with Dr Broome was extremely slow and difficult to begin with. Some of the staff answering the phone at the hematology department lack the skills to work with people. Dr Broome spent a total of 2 mins with me and never followed up with me after my appointment. She told me she would call me to inform me about my test results but failed to do so. I called several times and left a message with staff but I have not heard from her yet.
