To contact Hematology, please call:
8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central time, Monday through Friday.
How soon can I be seen?
Usually, an appointment can be set up by our appointment secretaries within approximately two weeks of your request. More timely appointments may be available for urgent or emergency medical problems. You should check with your insurance provider to determine if preapproval is required for a Mayo Clinic appointment.
Do I need a referral from my physician?
A physician's referral is not required for an appointment. Your physician may be able to guide you to the optimal group within hematology. You should bring with you any records, X-rays, or biopsy materials (for example, marrow or lymph node biopsy slides) relating to your condition.
Can I receive treatment at Mayo?
A wide variety of outpatient and inpatient therapies are available at Mayo. These range from simple to complex treatment programs, including bone marrow and peripheral blood stem cell transplant.
A number of treatments being tested as research protocols are available from Mayo hematologists. These include Mayo Clinic-sponsored research programs, National Cancer Institute or cooperative group programs, and pharmaceutical company-sponsored trials.
What if I want treatment closer to home?
Many patients live far from Mayo Clinic and may elect to receive care closer to home. Mayo hematologists routinely work with patients' home physicians to deliver the best care possible.
Some treatments of a highly investigative nature can only be given at Mayo Clinic. Your Mayo hematologist will work with you to make the most appropriate arrangements for your situation.
