Shweta Kurian, MD, hematologist, checks on a patient with hematologic cancer.
At MedStar Health, we provide care and treatment in the diagnosis and management of cancers of the blood and lymph systems, such as:
We believe that treatment should be a decision made by a combination of people: the patient, the patient's family and loved ones, the hematologist, and the referring physician. Once your diagnosis is confirmed, your medical oncology/hematology team will create a written plan for you about the treatment and will discuss it with you and your loved ones, so that everyone knows what to expect.
We know a cancer diagnosis is overwhelming, so we work to provide a full range of support services to our patients, including:
- A dedicated team of doctors and other medical staff assigned to your case
- Access to some of the most advanced clinical trials and research
- Easy accessibility to your doctors and your entire team
- Patient and Community Services including information and advice on:
- Psychosocial Counseling
- Spiritual Care
- Alternative Care
MedStar Health's reputation across the region is of compassionate healers: doctors and nurses who are tremendously invested in easing our patient's journey through the cancer treatment process. Whether you require specialized hematologic care, or targeted chemotherapy, or immunotherapy, you can trust our doctors will provide the most advanced care in a compassionate and caring setting.
Getting a second opinion means asking a hematologic cancer specialist, aside from your initial physician, to review your medical reports and test results and then provide a diagnosis and treatment recommendations. The specialist may confirm your initial diagnosis and treatment recommendations, provide additional treatment options, or even give more details about your type and stage of hematologic cancer. Even if you’ve already had treatment, it’s not too late to get a second opinion. To get a second opinion contact our hematologic cancer specialists by calling us at 877-715-HOPE.
