Pediatric Hematology

The clinic provides consultative services in benign general hematology to children from newborn to age 18. Common reasons for referral may include anemia, thrombocytopenia, neutropenia, abnormal bleeding, and counseling around hereditary hematological disease, among other benign hematological issues.

In addition, the hematologist provides antenatal consultation to pregnant women with congenital or acquired hematological disorders themselves whose newborns may be at risk for related hematological issues or complications. Adolescent patients seen in the pediatric hematology clinic who require ongoing follow-up, may be seen by the hematologist in her the adolescent young adult hematology clinic at St. Michael's Hospital once they turn 18.


All consultations are by referral only. A member of our clinic team will contact the patient within two weeks of receiving a referral.
