The California Dept. of Public Health along with the Center for Disease Control require masks to be worn in ALL health care facilities. COVID is a respiratory virus; as such all staff, patients and visitors must adhere to this directive at all Riverside Medical Clinic locations. ANYONE who refuses to comply will be asked to leave the facility. Many patients treated at clinics such as RMC have health issues that put them at a higher risk. This mask policy is designed to protect all our patients.
Our hematology department specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of blood diseases and cancers including iron-deficiency anemia, hemophilia, sickle-cell disease, leukemia and lymphoma.
An accurate diagnosis is the first step. To accomplish this, we rely on advanced diagnostic imaging technology to provide us with detailed pictures inside the body. A combination of medical imaging procedures may be used to show us the precise location and size of any abnormalities, including CAT scans, PET scans, ultrasounds, MRIs and mammograms. It can also determine if the problem is cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous (benign). Sometimes, a biopsy (examination of cells or tissue) is needed to determine what kind of cancer exists.
There are more than 100 types of cancer and symptoms vary by type. Because cancer requires such specialized expertise, we develop individual treatment and care plans for each patient. We also called on the area’s foremost expert on cancer treatment to help.
