Patients on chemotherapy, patients suffering from MDS, Aplastic Anemia ect, need supportive care with transfusions of PRBC and platelets. We are one of the few outpatient sites in the country that have a state blood banking license and do blood transfusions, platelet transfusions, and Factor product transfusions at our office.
Alternatives to Blood Transfusions
We also specialize in helping our patients who want to avoid transfusions for person reasons with erythropoietein stimulating agents like darbopoitein (Aranesp) or Procrit and Intravenous Iron to boost their hemoglobin levels.
While on treatment, many patients require additional support. We offer our patients Palliative Care consultations on site for the convenience of the patient. Palliative Care is a specialty that focuses on quality of life for both patient and family through an individualized approach to pain and symptom management, coping with illness, depression and anxiety management, as well as advanced care planning. Our Palliative Care team provides the patient along with the family with continued support.
