What’s a Hematologist?

A hematologist is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating blood conditions. Blood conditions can affect:

  • Blood vessels, such as the arteries, capillaries, and veins
  • Blood cells
    • Red blood cells (RBCs), which carry oxygen to the body’s tissues
    • White blood cells, which fight infections (WBCs)
    • Platelets, which help blood clot
  • Bone marrow, which makes your blood cells
  • Immune system, such as the lymph nodes and spleen

Symptoms of a Blood Disorder

Your primary care provider may refer you to a specialist after a blood test or if you have one or more of the following:

  • Abnormal bleeding and bruising
  • Fever
  • Lymph node swelling
  • Pale skin
  • Shortness of breath
  • Tiredness or weakness
