Why is this doctor not rated?


To ensure the accuracy of our patient satisfaction scores, we require that providers who see patients receive a minimum number of completed patient-submitted surveys before their reviews are listed on their profiles. Star ratings on this site are collected on a rolling basis from the previous 12 months.
Additionally, some of the physicians listed on our site do not see patients directly, and therefore, do not receive evaluation and ratings from patients.

Treatment Philosophy

I am a hematologist/oncologist specializing in the treatment of patients with hematologic malignancies (blood-related cancers). This is an exciting time in cancer treatment, with many new, highly effective and increasingly less toxic therapies being discovered and approved every day. I am delighted to have joined the faculty of Fox Chase Cancer Center in the Bone Marrow Transplant program, which is at the forefront of some of the most promising and effective treatments for patients with hematologic malignancies. I believe in partnering with my patients to jointly decide the best course of therapy to help them achieve their most important goals, while both maximizing their chances for survival and optimizing their quality of life.

Neal Kiner

  • Leukemia

I’m about to turn 84, feel good, and look much younger than my years.

My wife Alice and I have been married 54 years and live in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. We have two sons, a daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren.

A Surprise Diagnosis

In April 2020, a routine blood test showed that my white blood cell count had dropped. At first, my general practitioner thought I had a vitamin B12 deficiency and gave me injections and supplements for a few months. When my counts didn’t improve, I was referred to an oncologist.


Research Interests

Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and cellular therapies for patients with multiple myeloma, lymphoma, leukemia, myelodysplasia, myeloproliferative neoplasms and sickle cell anemia.
