Find a Specialist by Postal Code

This is a working list in progress of bone marrow failure specialists who are seeing new patients for treatment or consultation.

It’s important for patients to seek consultation with physicians who have experience working with bone marrow failure disease. We’ve developed this interactive map of physician specialists in bone marrow failure disease who have worked with the Aplastic Anemia and MDS International Foundation in a significant way as speakers, writers, editors, and/or advisors. This map will allow you to search for physicians in your area by location using the zoom-in feature, by zip code, or by disease area utilizing the dropdowns provided below.

Please note:

  • This list is not comprehensive and there may be specialists in your area who have not yet been included.
  • Physicians may move to another institution for various reasons and may no longer be at the location noted on this map.
  • The map will be updated as often as possible.
