Hematologist Recommendation 8 months 3 weeks ago #71903

Good Morning,
Wondering if there are any hematologist recommendations for the northern Virginia/DC area.  Our son was diagnosed with ITP at 4 and is now 11.  We have been on Promacta for a number of years and and our counts are generally stable (on the lower end), but can fluctuate.  Seeking a Hematologist who really understands ITP, the whole body challenges that it presents, and has experience with Promacta.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Jeff,

I don't live anywhere near you - and I'm an adult with ITP.  However if there is a teaching hospital/university hospital near you I would check there. 

Also feel free to post this up in the adult section - seems like not many come to the children's section right now.

Sorry your son is still dealing with ITP 7 years later!!
