Hematolog needed

Hi I a writting on behalf my very good friend.

She had ultrasound few days back which showed enlarged lymph nodes now on both sides of her neck. 6 months ago they were only on one side. She also told by her endocrinologist to see hematologist. No names or recommendations. So I am looking for her for recommendations. I thought you guys could be a big help. We live in Cleveland Ohio. Any names of good doctors in Cleveland area?

You live in driving distance to one of the best CLL centers in the country. Ohio State Medical Center in Columbus. I sure someone who goes there will chime in with doctor information.



Dr Byrd at The James is one of the most well respected CLL specialists in the U.S. I saw him in October.


Hello I have the same big lymp notes on both of my side. Saturday I came down with strep. went to the ER and they put me on Ketorulac & clindamyecin. Sodium Chloride. Took about 1hr He also did a Scan on my neck. Then he put me on penicillin for 10 days. .He also took lab & sais my Patasium was low & My WC where high, He Thought it was because of infection. Have to go see my family Dr & do Blood work again . Hope it was ok. I did have strep & today my tonsuls are big. & they have white on them fro the infection.. I hope it helps soon I don't like being sick


Follow up with your doctor to be sure if it's CLL or the infection. Let us know how you do.

Cleveland Clinic! Right at your door.

Definitely Ohio State University. My sister lives in Columbus. If I need another opinion, I will go up (live in FL) to Columbus. I am going to Moffitt Center in Tampa in Feb/March for second opinion.

Good luck in your journey!
