- Expertise and teamwork. At Mayo Clinic, doctors from a number of medical specialties work together to provide you with the best care possible. Your team may include specialists in allergic diseases, dermatology, gastroenterology, pediatrics, neurology, endocrinology, hematology and pathology.
- Experience. Each year doctors at Mayo Clinic treat more than 60 people with systemic mastocytosis.
- Timely care. A detailed itinerary for appointments, tests and procedures lets you make the most of your time at the clinic. Mayo Clinic technicians run all tests and labs themselves, which means tests taken in the morning can be reviewed the same afternoon. Mayo's collaborative approach means two or three days often yields the same diagnosis and care insights that could take weeks in less-coordinated institutions.
- Care at Mayo Clinic revolves around you. At Mayo Clinic, doctors manage systemic mastocytosis by regularly monitoring your condition, then tailoring a treatment plan to help you manage your specific symptoms. Mayo Clinic doctors get to know you and your concerns completely, and explain your options in plain language.
