Do I Need a CLL Specialist?
Posted: Mar 23, 2023
Do I Need a CLL Specialist? image

Dr. Alvaro Alencar, MD from the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center stated it is important for a CLL patient to have a CLL specialist on their care team. He understands that location may be difficult sometimes, however even if a patient visits a specialist as able, it helps ensure the patient has the most accurate care plan for their individual case of CLL. If the patient is only able to see a specialist infrequently, the CLL doctor can collaborate with the patient’s local hematologist oncologist to put the patient’s needed treatment plan into action.
