The best place to be taken care of for kids in Chicago is Children's Memorial Hospital. It is located at 707 West Fullerton ave. (45min east of O'Hare airport, telephone number is (773)880-4000. Hematologist I would recommend is dr. Alexis Thompson. I will check with the hematology clinic when is the best time to see her. My son Jacob had appointments with her on thursdays afternoons before he got transfered to stem cell transplant team. Another doctor you can consult with is dr. Morris Kletzel who is the director of entire hematology/oncology dept. as well as the head of transplant team. Both of them are very good doctors and I do recommend that you consult with both of them. By the way, my son had a BMT 2 weeks ago at Children's and is doing pretty good so far.
