HEALTH ALERT!  For the safety of our patients and staff, effective March 30, 2020, new patients and patients with disabilities will be permitted one visitor over the age of 15. No other visitors will be permitted into the clinic.  Family members and caretakers may participate in the appointments remotely by phone or video conference if desired. Compass is working with other health care providers in the area to help contain the spread of the novel Coronavirus. We are taking active steps to minimize your exposure to the virus. These steps include screening everyone who enters the clinic for signs of illness, banning most visitors in the clinic, minimizing our own staffing and allowing some employees to work from home, and frequent sanitation of the clinic. We are using personal protective equipment such as masks, gowns, gloves, and face-shields according to national guidelines. We are working to identify those patients whose visits or treatments can be safely delayed, and we will notify you of this if you have an upcoming visit.  We ask that you stay home if you have fever and/or cough.

Hematology

Hematologists are physicians with expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the blood and blood-forming tissues. These diseases include disorders of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, the immune system, and blood clotting; and hematologic malignancies (such as leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma). As a result of advances in medical knowledge, many hematologic disorders can be successfully treated.

Hematologists also have special training in transfusion medicine and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Many hematologists also have training in medical oncology and are board-certified in both disciplines. Like medical oncologists, hematologists work closely with physicians in other specialties, including internal medicine, family practice, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, and radiation oncology.
