About Ah-Reum (Autumn) Jeong, MD
Ah-Reum (Autumn) Jeong, MD, is a board-certified hematologist who specializes in treating people with cancers of the blood and lymph system including leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma. She is part of the joint UC San Diego Health / Sharp HealthCare Blood and Marrow Transplantation (BMT) Program, which provides patients with the unique opportunity to receive care from the same physician throughout all phases of blood cancer treatment. This includes initial diagnosis, treatment to help achieve remission, care during stem cell transplant procedures, and follow-up survivorship care.
