"Dr. Ebrahimi, is a fantastic doctor. The medicine he prescribed for me started to work immediately on day one. I have stage 4 breast Cancer. I could see the tumors that had dimple across my upper quadrant that made a line in the skin. In five days the line has gone and the tumors are shrinking. It is hard to find an Oncologist that can walk that fine line between a sense of humor and seriousness. He does that and I am not afraid of what is to come or go. I trust this doctor and my family doctor of 25 years trust this doctor. I am so blessed to have been put on this doctors path. He spends time with me, answers my questions, he does not sugar coat anything, I like that he is factual and I am not a chart or a series of medical reports. So, if you can follow his orders to the letter and really want to fight for your life and quality of life....... then Dr. Ebrahimi is your next call.\r
Hematology is a medical specialty that focuses on diseases of the blood, bone marrow, and lymphatic system. Blood flows to every cell in our body and is extremely important to our survival. Problems with the production of blood cells or cancers that affect the blood can be very dangerous. Hematologists treat these and other diseases, such as:
Anemia, a low level of red blood cells
Low levels of white blood cells or platelets
Bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia
Clotting disorders, such as deep vein thrombosis
Cancers of the blood, such as leukemia and lymphoma
To diagnose a blood disorder, hematologists may look at the blood under a microscope in a procedure called a blood smear. They may order a lab test of the blood called a complete blood count. This test measures the levels of red and white blood cells, platelets, and hemoglobin in your blood. They may do lab tests to measure the levels of proteins in your blood needed for bleeding and clotting. They may even do a bone marrow biopsy to check a small sample of bone marrow for problems in how blood is being produced.
A hematologist may work with all kinds of patients. Specialized hematologists called pediatric hematologists work only with children. All hematologists work to diagnose disease and prescribe treatments in order to care for their patients. They also work with general practice physicians, pediatricians, oncologists, transplant specialists, and others to guide treatment. Healing any problems with your blood is the first step towards your whole body feeling better.
