Haematology Clinic

What is haematology?

Haematology is the area of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of blood disorders. This includes a wide variety of problems such as anaemia and blood clots, and blood cancers such as leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

Many patients are referred to see a haematologist after blood tests performed by their local doctor or another specialist reveal an abnormality. Patients are often concerned that blood abnormalities may be a sign of cancer, and whilst this is possible, the vast majority of these blood abnormalities are not due to cancer. A haematologist can help to work out the cause of the abnormality and, if necessary, instigate appropriate treatments.

Patient information

What to bring to an appointment

We recommend you bring a referral letter from your GP or specialist including your current medical history, list of medications and copies of any relevant scans and/or blood test results.

If you do not have copies we can obtain these from the radiology or pathology companies.

What happens at your appointment?

The doctor will review the reason for referral and discuss your symptoms and medical history. You will be given a plan for any further tests that may be required and, if necessary, a follow-up appointment to review these results.

Costs and rebates

A referral from a GP or another specialist is required to claim back part of the cost of the consultation from Medicare. GP referrals are valid for 12 months from the initial appointment, whilst referrals from another specialist are valid for three months.

Opening hours

Suite 302 is open during business hours, Monday to Friday. Currently Dr Gasiorowski has a clinic on Tuesday afternoons.
