The Sickle Cell Disease and Thalassemia Clinic focuses on the needs of children, adolescents and adults who have sickle cell disease, thalassemia and other inherited red blood cell disorders.
The clinic is staffed by board certified hematologists/oncologists Dr. Anthony Villella, Dr. Susan Creary, and Jennifer Young, a Certified Nurse Practitioner. During their clinic visit, the pediatric patient with sickle cell disease is seen by a physician, nurse practitioner, nurse clinician, social worker, psychologist, a dentist, and a genetics counselor. Patients along with their families receive education about these illnesses and are counseled on potential therapies. Physical examinations and screenings are completed during each clinic visit to find early signs of complications from the disease so effective treatment can be implemented. Our program is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care and education in a manner that respects the cultural diversity of the community we serve.
