Hematology is a distinct subspecialty of internal medicine, separate from, but often overlapping with the subspecialty of Medical Oncology. It is the field of medicine which manages the diseases associated with the blood and the blood-forming organs. Blood disorders can affect the production of blood and its components such as blood cells, blood proteins and the mechanisms of coagulation. Our physicians treat patients with various hematologic diagnoses. Among those we treat are Anemia, ITP, Myelodysplastic Syndrome, Lymphoma and Leukemia, along with clotting and other blood disorders.
We Offer Many Hematology-Related Services Such As:
- Bone marrow biopsies
- Common lab tests such as CBCs and PT (INR)
- Intravenous infusions of iron for patients with iron deficiency anemia
- The monitoring of blood clotting for patients on anticoagulants through our coumadin (warfarin) program
All of the physicians and nurses in our office are committed to maintaining excellence in care for patients with both oncology and hematology-related diseases.
I know med (ikm) EHR
Implemented in 2011, our Electronic Health Records (EHR) System streamlines the entire patient visit, from check-in through billing, providing more thorough and efficient medical care for our patients. This system enables our physicians to update and review patient charts quickly and be assured that they are accurate, complete and legible. It also provides for “e-prescribing”-the electronic forwarding of prescriptions to your pharmacy for immediate pick up; and the convenience of your pharmacy contacting your physician electronically to request prescription refills. Faster, safer and more efficient, this system automatically checks your prescriptions for drug interactions, alerting your physician to any possible allergy conflicts. Our EHR system also provides for messaging within the practice, improving the internal communication of our staff. We are privileged to be at the forefront in the use of many high technology applications. Our EHR is constantly upgraded to the latest version released from our Practice Management System (PMS).
