James Hanje, MD, Director of Hepatology at Ohio State, explains what a hepatologist does. As liver specialists, they deal with a spectrum of diseases, such as hepatitis, autoimmune liver disease, liver cancer and more. Many patients are referred to a hepatologist following initial symptoms or an abnormal blood test for liver function. Regardless, Dr. Hanje believes the best care starts with a complete medical history and thorough physical exam.
