Kind of physician considered specialist for anemia
Jan 9, 2001

What kind of physician would be considered a specialist to work with anemia?

Response from Dr. Frascino

A hematologist is a physician who specializes in diseases of the blood, including anemia. Anemia however, can often be diagnosed and treated effectively by many different types of physicians. HIV specialists are often well trained to recognize and treat HIV-related anemia problems. General practitioners will often diagnose and treat common types of anemia such as iron deficiency anemia. However if a specialist is needed, search out a hematologist.
