Dr. Jon S Fukumoto has the following 2 specialties
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.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I had waited 4 weeks to see a hematologist & I was in a lot of pain & discomfort. My Doctos office was able to get me in with Dr Jon Fukumoto. I looked on the internet to get some ideas of what I am getting myself into. I was told by everyone to give him a chance. So I reluctantly did. From the moment he came into the room you could tell he had zero personality, he spoke so softly I could barely here him. . From the very fist time he spoke he asked why I was there. I explained my situation. He basically told me there was nothing he could do for me he was a hematologist /oncologist . He deals with cancer & we told him we were the to rul out that possibility . He just gave off this aura that he wanted to have nothing to do with me.. A very awkward unfriendly situation. He did feel my problem & said it was very large but he said we could not do an autopsy unless they took the organ out but he didn't thin that shoul be needed. The meeting was then over. Just like that it was over a big waste of time which I mentioned earlier. I was sad , irritated , frustrated as I had waited so long to see a hematologist. The whole situation was a complete waste of time I got no further in my illness it was a complete let Dow.
It took me approximately 2.5 weeks to get an appointment with Dr. Fukumoto. This was due to the fact that only 1 person was in charge of "scheduling new patient appointments" and this alleged person never seemed to be in the office. Dr. Fukumoto himself had little, if any, bedside manner. Throughout the entire visit (which only lasted 11 minutes), he did not smile. With all my previous doctor's consult notes I had on hand, Dr. Fukumoto barely glanced at one document and handed it back. He said the proposed diagnosis that my current primary care physician was impossible, that I could not have hemophilia just because I was female. Dr. Fukumoto did not even consider acquired hemophilia or any other possibilities. I found this absurd because in one of my other documents from another hematologist stated that I could have acquired hemophilia. At the end of the entire visit, he said that I was fine. There was no follow-up or any other comments made. I was baffled.Do NOT see this doctor. Even though he has high credentials, he does not show an ounce of compassion and is completely lacking in social skills.
