About Me

A diagnosis of a blood cancer or blood disorder is a daunting experience. For reassurance and expertise in the latest treatments, turn to Roberto Ferro, MD, a hematology oncologist who practices at Avera Medical Group Hematology, Transplant & Cellular Therapy in Sioux Falls, SD.

“Avera holds a fantastic hematology oncology portfolio, with effective treatment options,” said Dr. Ferro. “In addition, we are able to serve our patients close to home, either through in-clinic visits or telemedicine options.”

Comprehensive Care for Blood-Related Conditions

Patients of all ages are served by Dr. Ferro, who treats conditions such as leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma and anemia.

CAR T-Cell Therapy

One effective form of immunotherapy treatment that Dr. Ferro offers is called CAR T-cell therapy. A portion of the patient’s blood is removed, and then T-cells are removed from this blood. The T-cells are then modified to fight cancerous cells once they are reintroduced into the body.

Active Lifestyle

In his free time, Dr. Ferro enjoys playing chess, golfing, read about astrophysics, and keeping up with the latest news in medical journals.

August 17, 2021
I had to have more labs drawn as the Worthington Lab must have misread the orders. That's the only glitch this time.
August 10, 2021
Overall care was great the only complaint being appt was at 2:45 and dr didnt come in until 3:35... long wait and nothing Communicated that was going to be a long wait
July 27, 2021
The clinic office told me to be there at 12:45 for a 1:00 appointment. The text message told me to be there at 12:30 for a 1:00 appointment. Since I always show up a bit early, I waited in the waiting room from 12:25 to a bit after 1:00 to be seen.
