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.
- Hematology and Oncology
An Oncologist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of different cancers. This physician has extensive knowledge of the different signs and symptoms of cancer, as well as the various methods of treatment.
Oncologists diagnose cancer through methods such as biopsy, endoscopy, X-ray, blood tests, ultrasound, and different forms of nuclear medicine. They treat cancer through surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy, or antibody treatments.
If it is determined that a cancer cannot successfully be treated, oncologists then focus on providing palliative care, the use of pain medication to make a dying person more comfortable.
- 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.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

A long wait but worth it
Self-verified patient of Dr. James G Lichter - Posted on October 9th, 2011
The only reason I gave the Dr a 2 on wait time is because it seemed to take forever waiting for the Dr to come into the waiting room. However, I fully understood why. Dr. Lichter is thorough beyond compaire. He goes through all of your previous tests and makes sure you have all of your questions answered. He is patient and makes you feel as if you are the only patient he is seeing for the day. He is kind and will take as much time as needed to deal with the patients fears, questions and anxiety. I highly recommend him as a Dr. but if you are impatient or on a time schedule, he is not the one for you. I may have been a bit angry from the long wait, but I realized once I met him, he gave me the same amount of care and listened to my concerns as he did the patient before me. So I fully understood after meeting him, why it took so long. My only suggestion is he give a more realistic time for the appointment to the patient so they are not waiting as long.
