This clinic provides comprehensive care and case management services for adult patients with sickle cell disease and thalassemia. Consultative care is also available for patients with primary care at other sites. A dedicated nurse evaluates all patients and referrals are made for specialty care, such as orthopedics and ophthalmology.
