What to Expect at the Pediatric Hematology Assessment Clinic

Led by Taylor Losole, M.D., the clinic provides a one-time assessment of symptoms and begins the process of diagnosis. To schedule an appointment, patients must receive a referral from their primary care provider. (Don’t have a pediatrician? Boys Town Pediatrics is always accepting patients!)

After the assessment, management of care is returned to the patient’s primary care doctor, along with referrals to other specialties as needed. Dr. Losole will provide ongoing management of care for patients diagnosed with a disease where management by a hematologist is indicated.
