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.
- Medical Oncology
Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.
- Hematology & Oncology
- 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.

The waiting room is small, crowded, and uncomfortable. There is no privacy. This practice is bare-bones; they don't even bother providing wireless Internet, even though patients have to spend hours there tethered to IVs getting infusions. They have stopped providing blankets, too. There is absolutely no privacy in the infusion room...no curtains, nothing. While getting your chemo, you get to watch other patients get blood drawn, have IVs started, etc. There is little or no coordination between the receptionists and the medical staff and in fact I've seen them fighting. I have heard of other infusion centers with snack bars, TVs, music, and anything that would make patients comfortable. This practice makes no bones about being a business where cancer patients are cash generators; I just wish I could go somewhere else.
Dr Wallmark is caring, compassioned and thorough. He constantly reviews your information, discussed all aspects of my treatment and consulted other doctors to validate that treatment was successful. I am truly indebted to Dr Wallmark and his staff. The were always pleasant, kind and thoughtful. Ready with a smile, a word of encouragement and candy.
