Hailing Zhang, MD is an Assistant Member in Moffitt’s Department of Hematopathology and Laboratory Medicine and Assistant Professor of Oncologic Sciences at USF. Dr. Hailing Zhang received her Bachelor of Medicine degree from the Medical College of TongJi University in Shanghai, China in 1994 (1989-1994) and completed a renal pathology fellowship in Shanghai Medical University. In 1996, she came to the United States and attended graduate school at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) where she received her MS degree in pathology in 1999. She subsequently spent 7 years working (UAMS and Tufts University School of Medicine) as a research associate. She completed her pathology residency training in New Jersey Medical School (UMDNJ-Newark) between 2006 and 2010 and hematopathology fellowship training in Montefiore Medical Center (MMC) in New York. Upon finishing training, she joined Chilton Hospital in New Jersey and served as a staff pathologist before coming to Moffitt Cancer Center in 2012. Dr. Zhang is a dedicated clinician educator whose clinical and research interests include morphologic evaluation, immunophenotyping and molecular diagnosis of hematolymphoid malignancies. As PI or co-investigator on several university or hospital funded projects, she reviews the morphology, immunophenotype, and molecular classification, and develops budgets, compliance oversight and effective measures of analysis. As faculty she is also dedicated to teaching medical students, residents, fellows and international scholars. In addition, she serves as medical director of Specimen Processing, Chair of the Laboratory Safety Committee and Chair of the Committee for Laboratory Diagnostics. Her clinical interests focus on clinical diagnostic hematopathology, including leukemia, lymphoma, clinical flow cytometry and molecular genetics.

The Provider Rating is an average of all responses to specific care provider-related
questions from our nationally-recognized
Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive
different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Comments are gathered from specific care provider-related questions from our
Patient Satisfaction Survey . The comments are submitted by patients
and reflect their views and opinions. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and
We post both positive and negative comments from the surveys. We do not post comments
that are libelous, slanderous, profane, irrelevant or otherwise inappropriate or may
risk the privacy of our patients.
A “[…]” in the comments below indicates de-identified patient information or comments that
are unrelated to the patient’s experience with the visit to the provider, such as
comments related to another provider, about the survey itself, or otherwise completely
Not all providers will have a star rating or comments. In order to ensure accuracy of our
ratings, we only display ratings for providers who have a minimum of 30 completed from
the previous 12 months.
Provider Ratings and comments are gathered from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey
Patient Satisfaction Survey. If a provider does not have ratings or comments listed it
can be for several reasons, including:
The provider has not yet received the minimum number of patient satisfaction surveys
to be eligible for display. We require a minimum of 30 surveys before we post
results to ensure that the rating is statistically reliable and a true reflection of
