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.

When I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer, I did not anticipate a long survival time. That was 16 years ago! Here's why I would send anyone to Dr. Delprete: (1) He was extremely patient with any question I asked based on my online research - no matter how basic or "out there." (2)Dr Delprete is the research person in the practice. He is well regarded among his colleagues, which means that his patients are accepted into clinical trials. I believe that is why I have survived. (3)He always spends as much time as necessary, and promptly returns my calls when I ask his opinion about other health issues (4)All of the doctors in the practice seem to know everything about each other's patients. When he has been unavailable, any doctor I saw seemed right up to speed on my case. (5)Dr. Delprete is constantly attending conferences and doing whatever else he does to stay current with his field and his colleagues. (6)He has always been caring, honest, and forthright with me.
