Hematology Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplantation Spanish-Speaking Clinic
Hematology Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplantation Spanish-Speaking Clinic

The Spanish-Speaking Hematology/Oncology Clinic offers pediatric oncology services to Hispanic patients and families who speak limited English. Our team is dedicated to providing quality medical care that recognizes Spanish language needs and cultural differences related to health care. 

Clinic Staff

The clinic is led by Terrie Flatt, DO, MA, a pediatric hematologist/oncologist who is fluent and medically trained in Spanish. Dr. Flatt works with a team of dedicated providers to offer pediatric oncology services to an underserved population in the community who would have difficulty finding services elsewhere.

Clinic Highlights

Our team is dedicated to better understanding the ethnic and genetic differences in outcomes among Hispanic patients with leukemia. Ongoing research in partnership with our genomics program focuses on the genetic factors in these differences, which will help us provide better treatment to patients. We also provide trainee education to develop and improve Spanish-language skills and promote cultural awareness in the clinical setting.
