CLL Expert Healthcare Providers
Although CLL/SLL is the most common adult blood cancer, it is still considered a rare (orphan) disease. Treatments have changed radically in the last few years, and it is difficult for even dedicated blood cancer experts to stay on top of the latest advances. Having a CLL expert as part of your healthcare team, in addition to your local provider, has been shown to have a survival advantage.
We’ve compiled a list of healthcare providers in each state that can be found below. CLL Society incorporates a vetting process when adding individual healthcare providers to our list of providers. Some important criteria CLL considers when determining who is an expert includes asking if the provider regularly refers patients to clinical trials, do they perform the appropriate biomarker testing before deciding upon any treatments, do they primarily prescribe therapies that are considered the most current standard of care, and is the majority the patients seen in the office primarily consist of CLL/SLL patients.
(Please Note: The list below is not exhaustive of all CLL/SLL experts within the country).
Thank you to our sponsors for helping us provide the most updated CLL information.
When appropriate, the CLL Society will be posting updates and background information on the present Coronavirus pandemic focusing on reliable primary sources of information and avoiding most of the news that is not directly from reliable medical experts or government and world health agencies.
