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.

Dr Droder was my Mother's Doctor for almost 20 years and she trusted him with her life. He had worked with her for ITP, cancer, blood & nutrient deficiency, as well as several other complicated issues. We could have never ask for a more compassionate, caring down to earth Dr who kept up to the minute on the latest treatments & meds. Most of all he remembered you & your situations always and had the best bedside manner of any Dr I know. Mom recently died from heart issues while out of town & she begged for Dr Droder in the end. This man gave us our Mom for far more many years than we expected and we will always be grateful to him. Highly recommended
Dr. Droder cares about me as a patient, a person, a friend. I have been seeing him for over 10 years and he is the main reason I am still hear today. His bedside manners are excellent, his knowledge is overwhelming and he keeps up to date on the last research & developments. I would recommend him to any and everyone for hemotology/oncology. And his nurse is excellent as well, all the staff there is very caring and compassionate about the patients and their families.
