Dr Robert Marcus


Medical interests: General haematology; malignant haematological disorders such as lymphoma, leukaemia and myeloma. Dr Marcus has a special interest in using antibodies and other novel therapies to treat haematological malignancies.



As a Consultant Haematologist much of my work involves reviewing patients who have had abnormal blood test results to establish a precise diagnosis. A careful assessment is followed by additional investigations such as bone marrow examination and a review of imaging and biopsy results. I then develop a treatment plan for each patient or arrange for them to have the most appropriate onward referral. Blood disorders in many patients are due to other underlying medical problems and it is particularly satisfying to be able to see them here or refer them rapidly to my group of expert colleagues at The Physicians' Clinic. My own special interest is the management of malignant haematological disorders such as lymphoma, leukaemia and myeloma and I am able to offer these patients the latest evidence-based therapies at Leaders in Oncology Care in Harley Street.
