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.
- 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.

Dr. Ketchum was not comfortable answering questions regarding lab results for my father. When I inquired about specific information and asked him to contextualize that information for me, Dr. Ketchum marginalized my request by not answering me, turning his body away from me and addressing other family members. He was biased in his communication versus objective and stated his bias several times. He did not provide important detailed information despite being asked. He had no lab results for us to review. He spent five minutes with the family. I was appalled by his bedside manner and how patronizing he was. He was arrogant, rude and condescending. His bedside manner was patronizing. He spent less than 5 minutes with the family. His primary objective was to communicate his bias which he reiterated many times. He commandeered the conversation so that his bias would dominate. He was offended when asked questions. He was arrogant and rude. I hope I don't have to interact with him again.
