Find a Haematologist

The best way to find a Haematologist for your GP to refer you to is to look for a hospital that has a large cancer treatment centre associated with it, either public or private.

The IWMF has a list of doctors that has been acknowledged by them as having a high level of expertise in WM. In addition to consulting with patients, they are also performing research into Waldenstrom’s.

The IWMF list of doctors can be accessed at:
