Bleeding disorders in women and young girls can affect everyday life – from missed days at work to missed time in the classroom but often the disorders go undiagnosed. On the third Monday of each month, Hematologist Dr. Shilpa Jain and Gynecologist Dr. Shaveta Malik at the Specialized Hematology Experts Clinic – S.H.E. Clinic can diagnose and treat bleeding disorders in the female population.
While these specialties exist separately in other practices around the country, the S.H.E. Clinic is one of only eight in the United States that brings Hematology and Gynecology together.
The S.H.E. Clinic offers varying treatments depending on the individual needs of its patients, which can include girls as young as 10 or 12 to women in their mid-30s. As part of the Hemophilia Center of Western New York, the Clinic offers rapid testing for its patients. While screenings sent to outside facilities for testing can take, on average, up to ten days for results, the lab inside the Hemophilia Center can turn around a diagnosis in one hour.
HCWNY is dedicated to the treatment women and young girls. The overall goal of the S.H.E. Clinic is to improve the quality of life for patients.
