Dr. Mufaddal Hamadeh, MD's Expert Contributions
  • Persistent lymphotocytosis

    You have a minimal elevation in the lymphocyte count. This could be temporary due to certain viral infections, or it could be due to an early chronic lymphocytic leukemia of low-grade lymphoma. You need a through examination to look for enlarged lymph nodes. A follow-up blood test in a 2 to 3 month period should be done. A simple blood test called flow cytometry can usually tell if this is simple reactive lymphocytes vs. CLL vs. lymphoma. READ MORE

  • Do I have Polcythemia Vera?

    Not likely. Need to run two blood tests, erythropoietin level and jack2 molecular test. PV is uncommon at your age. Hormone supplements can sometimes lead to rise in red blood cells. Low blood oxygen levels due to respiratory problems or sleep apnea can raise your HB. READ MORE

  • Platelet clumping

    Platelets can clump sometimes if an EDTA test tube is used, in this case, blood should be tested in citrate or heparin tube and it should be normal. There is nothing wrong with your platelets. READ MORE

  • High lymphocytes

    No, if the rest of your cbc is normal. READ MORE

  • Pulmonary Embolism - Haematologist question

    Taking one Xarelto in this situation is not proven to help. I’m not totally against it; personally, I prefer taking one shot of lovenox 30-40 mg before and after the flight. Compression stockings are recommended. The best thing is exercise during the fight, to get up, walk and pump your calves. In your case, being on birth control pills and recent delivery is a much bigger factor. READ MORE

  • Taper off a prescription?

    Following cbc and iron studies should be used to guide iron therapy for women who have a heavy periods with iron deficiency may need to stay on iron. If oral iron could not be tolerated, iron through IV should be considered. READ MORE

  • Myelocytes relative percent very high after getting blood transfusion

    It depends on why you had to have a blood transfusion, what is the underlying problem. In general, mylocytes can be reactive, but they indicate a white blood cell disorder like myeloprolifrative disease. READ MORE

  • ALC

    It’s important to review the entire cbc and look at previous and future blood counts. The absolute lymphocytes count states here is not necessarily abnormal. READ MORE

  • blood test reference range

    Lymphocytes are relatively normal and I see no reason for concern. This could be a normal fluctuation. READ MORE

Get to know Hematologist-Oncologist Dr. Mufaddal Hamadeh, who serves patients in Tinley Park, Illinois.

A professional in the fields of hematology and oncology, Dr. Hamadeh is in practice with Alpha Med Physicians Group, LLC in Tinley Park, Illinois. It is a community-based cancer treatment center offering the very highest standard of care backed by experience, compassion, and commitment.

“When I first started practicing oncology, we had limited options for treating cancer. But we’ve grown light years in our understanding of cancer… and of how best to treat it. Today, there is an entirely new basis for hope among cancer patients, thanks to targeted therapies and other treatment advances. But what hasn’t changed is the importance of the commitment I make, which is to bring compassion, patience, and understanding to state-of-the-art cancer care” expressed the doctor. 

His clinical interests include anemia, biopsy – fine needle aspiration, blood transfusion, breast cancer, chemotherapy, gastric cancer, head and neck cancer, hematology, hemochromatosis, Hodgkin’s disease, kidney cancer, leukemia, lung cancer, melanoma, mesothelioma, multiple myeloma, oncology, ovarian cancer, peripheral stem cell transplant, prostate cancer, skin cancer, testicular cancer, tumors, and uterine cancer. 

In practice since 1991, Dr. Hamadeh is affiliated with Advocate Christ Medical Center, Palos Hospital, Franciscan Health Olympia Fields, Silver Cross Hospital, UChicago Medicine Ingalls Memorial, and OSF Saint Francis Medical Center.

Prior to his current endeavours, he served as the Chairman of the Department of Medicine at Advocate South Suburban Hospital from 2004 until 2007.

With a broad educational background, Dr. Hamadeh graduated with his medical degree from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Damascus in Syria in 1983. He then went on to perform his internship at Syrian Army Hospitals and Clinics, after which he relocated to the United States. Once there, he completed his residency in internal medicine at Mercy Hospital & Medical Center in 1991, followed by his fellowship in hematology-oncology at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1994.

As a testament to his success, he is board-certified in hematology and medical oncology by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). The ABIM is a physician-led, non-profit, independent evaluation organization driven by doctors who want to achieve higher standards for better care in a rapidly changing world.

In order to stay up to date in his field, Dr. Hamadeh remains an active member of the Syrian American Medical Society, Midwest Chapter (President) and the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

Hematology is the branch of medicine concerned with the study of the cause, prognosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases related to blood. Oncology is a branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. A hematologist-oncologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of cancer, malignant blood diseases such as leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma, and blood disorders such as iron-deficiency anemia, clotting abnormalities, hemophilia, and sickle-cell disease.

Among his philanthropic endeavours, Dr. Hamadeh has been involved with the Syrian American Medical Society Foundation, a global medical relief organization that is working on the front lines of crisis relief in Syria, in neighboring countries, and beyond to save lives and alleviate suffering. He has also served as the President of over 10 medical mission trips to help refugees.

On a more personal note, he enjoys motorcycling riding. His favorite place to vacation is Istanbul, Turkey. He speaks both English and Arabic.
