Sort of: Hematologists are specialists that deal with disorders of the blood, lymph-nodes, bone marrow and some cancers. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Confusing question: If you mean do they try to have a friendly relationship with them, the answer is yes (for most). They are not going to take over your family doctor activities like regular health exams, vaccinations, etc.
