Pregnancy & Hematology Clinic

The GW Medical Faculty Associates, Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, and Department of Hematology & Oncology, cater to your health needs. We are welcoming preconception, pregnant, or post-partum women with specific blood or hematologic conditions that are inherited or acquired to receive specialized care by two of our physicians, Dr. Homa Ahmadzia (Maternal Fetal Medicine) and Dr. Robert Siegel (Hematology). We offer multi-disciplinary exceptional care in an innovative fashion.
