Do you know which type of doctor to see if you have a blood condition that needs treatment – a hematologist or a hepatologist? Medical terms can be confusing and it’s easy to get them mixed up, especially when they are just about identical.

They sound very similar – you may even think they are the same thing at first glance, but they are completely different types of doctors.
