Associate Professor of Pediatrics Director, Pediatric Hematology
Director, Pediatric Cancer Risk and Bone Marrow Failure Clinic
Director, Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program

Jill de Jong, MD, PhD, treats children with all types of cancers and blood diseases, as well as hematopoietic stem cell transplant patients. She has specialized expertise in: hematology, including disorders of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets; autoimmune blood diseases; bleeding and clotting disorders; and genetic (inherited) blood diseases.

Dr. de Jong's research focuses on understanding genetic syndromes that predispose patients to bone marrow failure and/or cancer. By studying known genetic mutations that lead to cancer and uncovering new cancer predisposition syndromes, her work examines the mechanisms that cause cancer in order to improve cancer therapies. Through her research, she aims to optimize early detection, treatment, and, ultimately, prevention of cancer and bone marrow disorders.

Why does this provider not have a star rating?

Our goal is to provide our patients and visitors with correct and useful information. We only post provider satisfaction information from clinic surveys when they are returned from patients.

This provider has not had surveys returned that meet the necessary sample size

About Our Star Ratings and Comments:

Randomly selected patients are sent patient satisfaction surveys after their visits. We get thousands of survey responses each year. The responses are used to improve patient experience and recognize staff members for the care they provide. Patient survey responses are also used to make star ratings for each provider.

For the star ratings and comments, all feedback on the provider web page is posted as it was given from patients. Comments that do not apply, risk patient privacy, or are not appropriate are not posted. Star ratings and comments come from a number of survey questions. A star rating is not given if a provider only has a small number of survey responses.
