Blood Disorder Services

Our UCI Health hematology specialists provide the most comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for blood disorders that range from anemia and platelet disorders to leukemia.

Blood disorders are grouped into two categories: Benign (noncancerous) conditions are treated by hematologists. Malignant (cancerous) diseases are treated by hematological oncologists. In both cases, diagnoses can be made rapidly by our UCI Health laboratory specialists, allowing our physicians to get patients into treatment without delay.

Throughout this process, hematologists, hematological oncologists, nurses, dietitians, pathologists, radiologists and other professionals work as a team. Together, they provide comprehensive, coordinated care for patients with blood disorders of all kinds.
