Why Bring Hematology & Oncology Together?
Hematology and oncology form a strong relationship in the realm of medical specialties. Why is this? Hematology is the study of blood-related disorders and diseases. Oncology is the study of cancerous diseases and illnesses. A lot of overlap can occur between the two which in many cases lead to both experts in each specialty working together. What better way to offer a comprehensive solution to fighting cancer than having them under the same roof? There are many cancers such as leukemia and myeloma that are directly related to blood cell activity and require the assistance of a hematologist and an oncologist. Rather than seeing two separate practices, we decided to bring them together. Let’s meet our top-notch team.
Meet The Team
Our physician president and managing partner, Trina Poretta, joined the CCHS team in August of 2002. Trina’s thirty years of experience started when she received her bachelor’s degree from Muhlenberg College in PA. Thereafter, she went on to graduate from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of NJ in Stratford, NJ, and completed her fellowship at Cooper University Medical Center. Dr. Poretta is board certified in internal medicine, oncology, and hematology. In comparison to other specialists, she has more experience with renal neoplasms, resections, and blood disorders than most specialists in the area. On top of working with CCHS’s team, Trina is affiliated with medical facilities such as Jefferson Hospital of Cherry Hill and Washington Township.
Another crucial part of our managing partners is Richard Gordon of Philadelphia, PA. Dr. Gordon has amassed a longstanding medical career of over fifty years in hematology and oncology. His experience started while attending the American University in Washington, D.C. where he received his bachelor’s degree. From there, Richard continued his education at the Medical School of Osteopathic Medicine at Philadelphia College and completed his fellowship at Hahnemann Medical College & Hospital. Dr. Gordon is board certified in internal medicine, hematology, and medical oncology. Dr. Gordon’s fifty years of experience have led him to receive a lot of recognition as well as different affiliations. Currently, he is affiliated with Virtua Hospital of Marlton and Voorhees as well as Jefferson Hospital of Cherry Hill, Stratford, and Washington Township.
Lastly, the third person to complete our trio is our managing partner, Ruby Hanna, who brings over fifteen years of experience to the table in oncology.
