Biography

April DePombo, D.O. is a pediatric hematologist and oncologist.

Meet the Doctor

Hello. My name is April Depombo. I'm a pediatric hematologist oncologist. I treat children, adolescents, and young adults with blood disorders and cancer. I'm originally from Kansas City. I'm a big Royals fan, and I graduated twice from the University of Kansas. So, I'm definitely a Jayhawk at heart. The people really made the difference for me and influenced me the most. I've talked to different doctors and nurses, medical assistants. Everybody said, "Oh, I've been here 10 years. I've been here 20 years, 18 years." And that spoke volumes to me. Also, the fact that the team puts the focus on putting the patient first above all else, doing what's right for them. That's another thing that drew me here. I'm married and we have an 18-month-old son. So, we love to do things with him and go to the beach, go swimming, new restaurants, really exploring the new area and really making this our home.
