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.
- Pediatric Hematology-Oncology
- 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.

Dr. Douvas is #1 out of every doctor my dad ever had. He is full of kindness and compassion. His bedside manners are excellent both to patient and family. His medical expertise eases the stress of what is happening medically. We felt safe having him as our doctor. We give him the highest rating possible. Thank you Dr. Douvas.
From the first time I spoke with Dr. Douvas after being diagnosed with Cancer, I have been nothing but extremely impressed and pleased with his bedside manner, his compassion, his attention to detail and memory, his personality put me at ease, kept me calm and helped me cope with a very difficult situation. This gentleman is by far the most remarkable dr. I have ever met. His people skills, as well as medical knowledge and insight, desever to be recognized as the top in the medical field. Dr. Michael Douvas is, without a doubt, a truly remarkable person and Doctor.
I wish they could bottle the essence of this doctor and give some to every medical student going out to practice medicine. He is smart, compassionate, listens and astonishes me by what he remembers about me and my case from one visit to the next. He respects you and your choices and views his role as a partner in your process. He is thorough and really works to do the best he can for you in every way, truly committed to his patients and his work as a doctor. Choose him and you will be in good hands. the only down side is that he sometimes gets behind schedule because he choses to be totally present with each person. this never bothers me as i know when he comes into the room with me I will get 105% of his attention.
