What is Hematology?
Hematology is the study of blood, the parts of the body where blood is formed, and blood diseases. In addition to offering cancer-related services, CCSCI also specializes in hematology, including the treatment of patients with anemias, bleeding, and clotting disorders.

What will Happen if You are Referred to CCSCI for Hematology Services?
Patients referred to CCSCI for hematology services will meet with a hematologist for an initial consultation, review of family history, and detailed examination. In addition, bleeding or clotting tests will be drawn and analyzed.
