Dr. Selina M Luger 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.

Dr Luger treated my boyfriend the last 9 months. She is an EXCELLENT Dr. She was nothing but the best as far as I am concerned. Not only her knowledge but her compassion toward us was amazing. I will never forget her or the kindness she has shown toward us. I knew when i chose her as our Dr. I was getting the best and i was correct.
Nothing moves quickly at the Abramson Cancer Center. But Dr Luger is worth the wait. She spends as much ch time as she needs to to really look at the patient, assess conditions and reach a diagnosis. My father has AML and has been a patient of Dr Luger for a year. We are very happy with her attention, her advice, her follow up. I can't say enough nice things about her.
Dr. Luger has terrible bedside manner. Her patients are in life-or-death situations and she is condescending and unkind. The least she can do is be nice even if she can't save their life. Please, Dr. Luger, be kinder. It means so much to someone who is so sick. It breaks my heart when I think of how you treated my loved one while he was in your care.
Actually, on a scale of one star to four, I'd rate Dr Luger about a twelve. From day one, she attacked my illness with a singleness of purpose. Win or lose, I got the sense immediately, that I had put myself in the hands of someone who was in the fight with me. Dr Luger saved my life, and made me feel extremely safe in the process, both equally remarkable accomplishments.
I was very disappointed with the follow through provided by Dr. Luger. She did not return any calls and inquires made by my family who were kept "guessing" most of the time. Please be aware that while University of Pennsylvania may have a stellar reputation if your illness does not fall into any of the docs research specialties and they can't use your case for statistical purposes and grant applications you will be treated better at a hospital located in a third world country. They will not admit mistakes, which as we know is the first step in fixing a problem. They are fast to call "meetings" with family members but these are just a waste of time since they do not process and act on constructive critisism. Make sure you do your own research and have as many family member advocates as you can because it will become a full time job making sure that you get the care you are paying for. Do not let any staff both docs and nurses talk you into anything you are not completely comfortable in doing. Good Luck! I wish I had a time machine because I would not have gone there.
