Hematologic Oncology Services

The UC Irvine Health hematologic oncologists provide consultation and treatment for patients with many different types of cancer.

These include solid tumor carcinomas such as colon, breast and prostate, and malignancies of the blood such as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. 

People diagnosed with cancer typically need a variety of medical specialists, treatments and services.

All of these are available at the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, an integral part of UC Irvine Health. Ancillary services such as support groups, dietary guidance and pain management are also available.

To make an appointment, call 714-456-8000.

Malignant blood diseases such as acute and chronic leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma and other bone marrow disorders often involve a complex treatment plan.

At UC Irvine Health, a team of highly experienced hematologists, surgical, medical and radiation oncologists, nurses, dietitians, pathologists and radiologists work together to provide each patient with the best possible care.

The Hematology/Oncology physicians are affiliated with UCLA Health Systems for bone marrow transplantation procedures. We provide pre- and post-transplant services at the cancer center to minimize travel for bone marrow transplantation patients from Orange County.
