Customer Question

I'll be seeing a hematologist MD there at my V.A. hospital. It's a follow up to an MRI. Can you tell me what a Hematologist MD deals with?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Just some stuff to deal with my past.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. The MRI is a follow up to a concussion that I had.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
