What to Expect at a Hematology Appointment

If you've been referred to a hematologist, it could be for a blood cancer diagnosis such as leukemia, lymphoma or multiple myeloma. However, there are many non-cancerous blood disorders treated by a hematologist at a cancer center.

Find out what you might experience during a typical hematology appointment at Virginia Oncology Associates. Our hematologist walks you through the typical experience as well as other types of tests that may be needed and questions he's often asked. It's important you feel comfortable with your hematology team.
