Hematology is the branch of internal medicine, physiology, pathology, clinical laboratory work and pediatrics that is concerned with the study of blood, the blood-forming organs and blood diseases. Hematologists are at the forefront of advances being made in the treatment and prevention of blood diseases.1 If you or a loved one is diagnosed with a blood disorder, your primary care physician may refer you to a hematologist at Newton Medical Center for further testing and treatment.
